The purpose of this Interactive Qualifying Project was to investigate the topic of transgenic animals, and to determine the impact of this complex new technology on society. Information is presented on how such animals are created, examples of which ones have been created to date, their importance to society, and the ethics surrounding their construction and use. The knowledge gained in this project instilled a pro-transgenic perspective in the author, with some cautions regarding rare cases of animal suffering.
