    I do not think Kira can be used as supporting evidence for "genetically engineered clones heal faster" than normal humans.

    Kira likely has mutations, and she is certainly NOT an intended consequence of the genetic engineering. Quite the opposite. And, the reason Dyad wanted her so much, is because she apparently has something related to healing that the clones lack, that could possibly heal the disease some clones suffer from.

    There are some dates on wikipedia on Gene Therapy:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene_therapy#Development_of_gene_therapy_technology

    Ethan might be the only one who knows their intended special abilities. But the grand experiment could be testing Nature vs Nurture, or they put in slight variances between the clones to find the best combination. Or they lost track what their artificial sequences do, and have to reverse engineer them.

    Military experiments on soldiers, have often revolved around improving combat performance.
    Stronger
    Faster
    Endurance
    with Lack of Sleep
    Follows commands
    but with Good judgment
    Unhesitant to kill
    and No PTSD

    That said, their typical test subject is Male instead of Female. So I dunno what's really going on.
