The best use of cloning would relate to stem cells, that are replicated for growing human or animal tissue. This tissue can be used to grow organs which can be transplanted to fight diseases.

Having 2 or more identical samples from cloning can also help scientists do research on the treatments for various diseases, and what works best, without using humans for a clinical trial.
