The purpose of this project was to explore the topic of transgenic animals and the effects this technology has on society. Using various web resources and journals, the project team describes the popular methods of creating transgenic animals and some of their beneficial uses. The team then discusses the ethical and legal implications of genetically modifying animals for human gain. Through the completion of this project the team has attained a pro-transgenic attitude except in cases of extreme animal suffering.
