Tools in the 21st Century Tool Box: “Hot Science” on GE Animals

Today’s program at the 7th Transgenic Animal Research Conference in Tahoe, Calif., hit the “hot science”, as one researcher from Germany noted during lunch. The research on genetically engineered (GE) animals will reap huge dividends in societal benefits to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. I was particularly impressed by the Chinese researchers from State Key Lab of Agrobiotechnology, China Agricultural University, Beijing. In 2001 they began studying six different genes in GE cattle which Read More >

Scientists Enthusiastic About Potential for Genetically Engineered Animals

“We have the first approval in the United States – I see so many exciting things coming in the future from GE (genetically engineered) animals – now is our time” urged a scientist attending the 7th Transgenic Animal Research Conference in Tahoe, Calif., August 17-21. There are compelling benefits from the research and development of GE animals for society such as advancing human health, improving foods, enhancing animal welfare and reducing the environmental footprint of Read More >
