What are GMAs?

GMA's (Genetically Modified Animals) are created by the process of inserting certain genes into an animal to create desired characteristics.


Specifics:

Provides-


  • Advances in human health
  • reduced environmental impact
  • improved quality of life for animals
  • improvement of industrial products

Why are GMAs important and how do we use them?

Scientist genetically modify animals to get certain traits out of them that cause them to be more appealing and more useful for certain needs.

Technology Needed

In order to create animals with certain traits, scientist use modern technology called transgenesis (transfer of genetic material from one organism to another).
