Adams, David S.
Transgenic animals are genetically modified organisms whose genomes have been integrated with foreign DNA to provide a new phenotype. This project informs the reader of various uses for this technology, and discusses the impact of this controversial technology on society. This IQP weighs potential benefits of specific transgenic animals against legal and ethical concerns regarding their use. The author concludes that transgenesis could provide enormous benefits for society, and should be allowed to continue under tight NIH and FDA oversight.
