Adams, David S.
The purpose of this IQP was to investigate the controversial new topic of transgenic animals, and determine the impact of this new technology on society. Through extensive medical, scientific and ethical research, this paper documents the impact of transgenic animals on society. Topics such as the description and construction, classification and examples, ethical issues, legal issues and the impact that this newly developed technology has made are detailed in the work. Illustrations, tables and direct quotes have been utilized to convey some of the more technical aspects of the topic. The authors conclude that with cautious oversight, transgenic animals can indeed be made with minimal or no animal suffering, which have enormous potential benefit to society.
