How GM animals are beneficial towards society
Genetically modified animals can lead to new research studies and breakthroughs in understanding genetics.
- Mice are some of the most tested animals for genetic modified animals.
- Knockout Mice is a mouse with a particular set of genes to help with research
Trans Genetics Inc. assets has produced over 1,000 knockout mice that have lead to new breakthroughs in genetics.
Animals have been modified to produce proteins in order to make certain medicines.

Scientists have been working on removing the allergen gene from cats to make them non-allergenic.
There are many kinds of genetically modified animals that can benefit people.
Evidence I found that helps answer my question (use bulleted points):
GE animals can be used for medical reasons
Milk produced by the GE animal can be used for pharmaceuticals.
Can be used for scarce cells

Animals that consumers want for food can be modified to be safer and healthier.
Animals can be modified to be disease resistant.
Could be modified to improve nutritional growth
GE animals are intended to improve modern biotechnology.
Can be used for producing medicines
Could be used to make the animal grow faster to produce more food.
Genetically modified animals positive traits.
Cows are modified to produce important drugs in their milk.
Growth hormones are added to make the animal produce more and for people to profit from it
GMO pharmaceuticals can help prevent health problems or diseases.
Insulin for diabetes
Interferon for cancer
GMO’s can benefit the environment.
Improving nutritional value
Remove pollutants from certain areas.
