Abstract

The purpose of this IQP was to discuss the topic of transgenic animals, explore the reason for creating them, and assess their impact on society. This paper examines how transgenic animals are made and the main types that have been created. It also looks at their ethical and legal issues, and the impact of this new technology on society. This paper concludes that, with oversight caution, transgenic technology should continue. Transgenic animals can have enormous medical benefits and could help curing disease.
