First of all, sombody at the college must have a good buddy in government. This is down right highway robbery. For one thing, this question was answered back in "66" while I was in college at Regis in Denver, Colo. Asexual reproduction is a dead end evolution. There is no gene pool to draw from. Sexual reproduction draws from and strenthens the gene pool of the species. That is why even though it is labor intensive it is the reproduction of choice. Not to mention in the human species way more fun. They should throw everyone involved with this into prison for fraud.
