Transgenic animals are genetically altered to express traits or behaviors not normally present in that species by inserting a foreign gene into their genome. The purpose of this IQP was to study the potential of this technology and its effects on society. The scope of our research incorporates a description of transgenic animal creation, a distribution of animal types, and a discussion of current ethical and legal debates. The conclusion formed from this research indicates that regulation and cautious deliberation of animal treatment can offer minimal animal suffering, while providing maximum benefit for society and humanity.
