Composition Exercise
Fill in the gaps with the words or expressions in bold used in the model essay above.

The diagram illustrates the process by which a lamb is cloned from two individual sheep.  Overall, there are several stages ranging from egg and cell removal to fusion and surgical placement, which finally results in the birth of a baby lamb.

To begin with, two separate cells are taken from two female sheep; an udder cell from the first sheep and an unfertilized egg cell from the second one.  After the nucleus of the egg cell has been successfully removed, the udder cell is fused with the empty egg cell using a shock of electricity.  Following that, the newly fused cell then divides normally into an embryo which consists of several cells.

Once an embryo has fully developed, it is surgically implanted inside the uterus of a surrogate ewe.  After implantation, the newly implanted embryo develops as expected into a regular lamb.   When it is born, the resulting lamb is a clone.
