Abstract

In this project, the growing science of transgenic animals and the effects it has on society are discussed. Chapter one examines how the transgenic animal is created. The second chapter explores the wide variety of current uses for this technology. Moving from the science to the effects on society, chapter three tackles the ethical issues that arise when building these animals, and the last chapter presents the legal controversies over animal patenting design and methodologies. The conclusion, based on the performed research, offers the authors viewpoints on how transgenic technologies should continue.
