Manipulation of Genes in Vitro and in Vivo
The genetic engineering of animals is by no means a new concept. Since the beginnings of history, man has attempted to improve his livestock and domestic animals through selective breeding. Such classical breeding schemes, though successful in many aspects, are limited by at least 2 major constraints. First, genetic information can be exchanged only between mem bers of the same or very closely related species. Second, these schemes depend on naturally occurring mutations or variants that may arise at very low frequencies.
