A transgenic animal contains genes its species does not normally have. This new technology allows animals to have a wide range of medical and research uses. The purpose of this IQP was to examine this technology and its impact on society. Areas addressed included: transgenic technology description, animal construction, classification, examples, ethical and legal concerns. This project found that with careful consideration transgenic animals can be made with little or no suffering for the animals, while providing a great deal of potential gain for humanity.
