Expert Answer:

Cloning is a process of producing genetically identical copies of an organism.

Cloning also refers to the process of producing identical copies of a DNA segment.Here, a DNA segment is introduced into another living organism which reproduces very fast. Thus the foreign DNA segment is reproduced in large amounts. The resultant recombinant or hybrid molecule is introduced into a cell in which it can replicate, and finally the cells are grown in culture
