UMass Researchers Announce Birth Of Genetically Modified Cloned Calves

...are used annually worldwide. Combining cloning and transgenics to produce recombinant human albumin may provide a safe and more cost-effective substitute for the plasma-derived product. An individual cloned transgenic dairy cow is expected to produce approximately 80 kilograms of recombinant human albumin annua...

Zebrafish could become genetics 'lab rat' of choice

...veral fields. "From an agricultural point of view, transgenics and gene knockouts can be used to control reproduction, disease rate, growth rate and many things that are very valuable in livestock," he says. "This technology could be used to make sterile animals so that transgenic animals cant breed if they esca...

Scientists report first transgenic animal developed via retroviral DNA insertion into male germ-line stem cells

...togonial stem cells are of additional interest for transgenics applications because they are the only cells, including all other stem cells, that undergo self-renewal throughout an animals lifetime and contribute genes to subsequent generations. Previous attempts to genetically alter this unique type of stem ce...

Multimillion dollar immunology research directed at edible or nasally delivered vaccines

...ia Tech is a recognized leader in plant and animal transgenics as a means of producing complex proteins for medical, veterinary, and industrial applications. Craig Nessler, head of the Department of Plant Pathology, Physiology, and Weed Science (PPWS) at Virginia Tech, and Fabricio Medina-Bolivar, a researcher a...

Ecological risks of GMOs come in unexpected ways, model shows

...d said. The scientists say the increased risk from transgenics comes about because such transfers involve one gene from a different species. "This gene has a mega effect that may confer new functionality on the organism," Howard said. Traditional breeding, on the other hand, can only affect genes of that specie...

Biotechnology taught as a tool for teaching

...ward enhancing the nutrient value of foods through transgenics are among topics to be discussed at the 8th Biotechnology Educators' Conference at Virginia Tech July 16 to 19. These presentations by nationally recognized experts will cap the East Coast's premier biotechnology conference for teachers. In addition ...

Transgenic animals produced using cultured sperm

...e transgenic fish are not mosaic, so screening for transgenics is reduced and an entire generation of breeding is skipped. That saves significant time and money." The zebrafish, Danio rerio, is a small, transparent aquarium fish used as a model system for studying the biology of vertebrates. The fish, which shar...

Purdue scientists: Genetically modified fish could damage ecology

...dified organisms - GMOs for short, and also called transgenics - is whether they are safe for people to eat. When GMOs were first made commercially available in 1996, many food crops, such as corn and soybeans, were altered to produce substantially more yield than they do in nature. The debate on GMOs in superma...
