Abstract

This project investigated the use of transgenic animals in recent experiments and the effects of this novel technology on society. Using scientific journals and web resources, we examined the transgenic animals in existence, their uses, and the surrounding ethical and social issues. Recommendations were offered on which experiments involving transgenic animals should be continued and how to apply this new technology to the fields of science and medicine.
