States that nothing in this Act shall restrict other areas of scientific research not specifically prohibited by this Act, including important and promising work that involves: (1) the use of somatic cell nuclear transfer or other cloning technologies to clone molecules, DNA, cells other than human embryo cells, or tissues; or (2) the use of somatic cell nuclear transfer techniques to create animals other than humans.
