Adams, David S.
Transgenic animals are animals that have a new non-native sequence inserted in their DNA in order for the animal to mimic some human trait. Two main methods are used to create a transgenic animal, and because these methods have existed since 1980s, many animals on this planet have a transgenic twin. In this IQP are discussed the technologies for creating a transgenic animal, their various applications in medicine and industry, and their positive and negative impact on society, shown through their ethical and legal concerns.
