This Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) examined transgenic animals and their effects on society. The project first describes the technology used to create such animals, then categorizes the types of transgenic animals created to date. Later chapters focus on their benefit to society versus the ethical concerns of their creation, and documents current legislations regulating their use. Finally, the project authors provide a conclusion about which transgenic experiments should continue or cease. This IQP strives to relate the social needs for transgenic animals to the concerns raised by the development of this controversial technology.
