The goal of this project was to show how genetic modification, used to create transgenic animals, affects society. Each section is defined to provide background on the methods used for creation, examples of transgenic animals that have been created, a summary of the legal and ethical issues encountered, and to express project team members' feelings and reactions to the information presented. There are great societal advantages associated with creating transgenic animals, so long as ethical issues are considered.
