About this book

This book is about transgenic animals - animals into which new genes have been artificially produced. It has chapters by leading authorities on the present state-of-play regarding the application of transgenic technology to different animal groups.

The emphasis on commercial applications, combined with the broader coverage of animals, makes Animals with Novel Genes a useful addition to the growing literature on transgenic animals. Choice
