We examined the methods of creating transgenic animals, the reasons for doing so, and the resulting effect on society. The most common methods of making transgenic animals are described, and the transgenic animals created to date are categorized by purpose. Some myths about transgenic animals are dispelled, and the ethical criteria for determining whether such animals should be made are established. Three specific examples of ethical, difficult to determine, and non-ethical creations are analyzed for illustration.
