The gun revolutionized the techniques of genetic engineering by making it much easier to introduce new genetic material into a cell. Today, you can buy gene guns for a few thousand dollars, and the 1987 gene gun is already a historical legacy artifact, featured at the Smithsonian National Museum.

DNA is coated onto microscopic gold or tungsten pellets that are propelled by the particle gun into plant or animal tissues that are in a petri dish (inset).

In the years since Dolly’s birth, scientists have cloned other sheep as well as mice, pigs, goats, cattle, cats, and deer from adult cells. Although time and experience have made researchers more successful at cloning mammals, the technique is by no means straightforward. Dolly was the only lamb born from 277 attempts at cell fusion, and the success rate for producing live, healthy offspring from adult mammalian cells still stands at around only two percent. Dolly eventually died in February 2003 at the age of six, about one-half the normal life span for her breed.

With restriction enzymes as their cutting tools, scientists can not only produce standard fragments of DNA, but can also know that every cut length ends with a particular nucleotide sequence — a fact that later helps them join different fragments of DNA together.
