Scientists at India's National Dairy Reserach Institute on Thursday said they have cloned the world's first buffalo calf using a technique superior to the one used in cloning 'Dolly' - the sheep.

In a statement, scientists of the Animal Biotechnology Centre at the Karnal-based NDRI said the "handguided cloning technique" was an advanced modification of the "conventional cloning technique" used in cloning Dolly.

The buffalo calf was born on February 6 at NDRI campus.

"The new technique is less demanding in terms of equipment, time and skill," the statement said.
