Shannon, Thomas A.
This investigative paper will examine the technical, ethical and legal implications of the transgenic techniques of disease modeling, xenotransplantation, and biopharming. The authors' basis for their discussion is included as a detailed background of past animal usage and animal testing. Specific cases of these transgenic technologies will be studied in depth to demonstrate the applications of the conclusions reached. Through legal and ethical analysis, we have demonstrated the current necessity of continued transgenic animal research.
