Animals or plants with special qualities could be mass produced to help in the manufacture of important drugs.

You could replace pets which have died or even repopulate endangered or extinct species.

Earlier this year, the first clone of an endangered animal was born; a baby bull gaur (a wild ox) called Noah.

Although Noah died of an unrelated infection, the experiment showed it's possible to save endangered species through cloning.
