Can Training influence Genes ?

How far the genes can be influenced by training? This is a question of Nature v/s Nurture, very commonly asked by the geneticists. The world’s first cloned animal from the horse family will challenge naturally bred runners in Nevada. Idaho Gem is a mule created three years ago by cloning the DNA taken from a foetus produced by the same parents that sired a champion race-runner named Taz. The scientists of the University of Idaho had also produced two other cloned mules in 2002 from the same DNA. Idaho Star, one of those two who cloned will compete with Idaho Gem in Nevada, as well as on the Californian fare racing circuit this summer. They all carry DNA of past champions. Will this be a guarantee for winning? Only performance will prove !
