    Hi -

    No, in the gene-world it is mutation and sexual combination. Within the
    cell, yes, it is a copying function. But even that gets messed up-
    copying mistakes are a prime mutative agent.

    But, to make a new and different person, so far, we don't copy, we have
    sex. Like Ray says, a brave new world awaits.
