A transgenic animal is an animal into whose genome foreign DNA has been transferred for the purpose of studying and manipulating that DNA. The use of such animals in research, medical fields, and industry has many possibilities; however, there remain many ethical and legal questions regarding their creation and usage. The purpose of this IQP was to explore the methods and technological advances involved in the creation of transgenic animals, and investigate their impact on society via the legal and ethical ramifications of their development. Upon examining current information regarding transgenic animals, it can be concluded that with the proper precautions they can provide enormous benefits for society.
