I have a basic understanding of how cloning is done from here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning but hypothetically, if I wanted to clone myself, would it be enough to get the nucleus of any of my cells and put it into the host egg? I thought only the sperm cell can fertilise the egg. Or is the fertilisation in this case done articificially in which case only the DNA is important. But different cells in my body have slightly different DNA because the cells do different jobs and function differently? Does this fact not matter in cloning? Does the cell from me have to be diploid, haploid or dosen't matter? Why?
