Adams, David S.
This project describes the technology of inserting foreign DNA into the genomes of animals to create transgenic animals that benefit society. Transgenic animals have served as models for screening vaccines, producing drugs, or producing organs for patients awaiting transplants. The first chapter describes transgenic technology, while chapter-2 shows examples of how these animals are used. The third chapter introduces some of the ethical issues associated with this technology, while the fourth chapter describes the laws regulating the technology, and the pros and cons of animal patenting. The authors finally provide their own unique perspectives on the issues addressed in the chapters.
