Transgenic Animals: Models for Human Disease

Transgenics is a technique used to insert foreign DNA into another organism. Recent scientific technology has been developed, which allows for these animals' genes to mimic conditions of human disease. These transgenic animals have become models for human disease and have led to breakthroughs in treatment, drug development and deeper understanding.
