This IQP investigates the medical importance of transgenic animals, and discusses the trials and tribulations of accepting this biotechnology throughout society. First, it introduces the most common techniques used to create genetically modified animals, as well as definitions of each classification. Next, we discuss the controversial topic of whether transgenic animals should be made, as their benefits to society are weighed against the costs. Finally, this report examines the patent-ability of animals, and the impact that process has on research and commercial applications.
