This project attempts to provide updated information on the ongoing research of transgenic animals, and discusses the impact of this technology on society. The project begins by describing the main methods used in making transgenic animals, and then provides examples of these animals and their various classifications. Transgenic technology's many ethical and legal issues are discussed as the project progresses. The authors conclude that this technology provides many medical benefits to society, and it should be continued with strong legislative oversight. Millions of lives can be saved by advances in this field.
