Engineering The Future Of Animals?

How is the science of transgenic, or genetic engineered, animals progressing?
Dr. Bruce Whitelaw provides an overview of the future of genetic engineering

Transgenic, or genetic engineering, of animals continues to evolve. Genetic engineering is not a technology that is going to replace standard breeding methods. Rather, it will add access to genetic variation, increasing the pool of genetic diversity that can be worked with.

Dr. Bruce Whitelaw, Deputy Director and Head of Developmental Biology Division at Roslin Institute, shares the science background and then highlights some of the future trends that are beginning to take place in genetic engineering [video][audio][pdf].
