Transcript of The Genetically-Modified Frog

The Genetically-Modified Frog By: Janeth Hermosillo Let's Observe a See-Through Frog! Frogs are often used for research.
- more humane without harming frogs
- better methods of observing in a more natural state Why the transparent frog? The life-cycle of frogs can be
observed in a whole new
perspective. Why transparent frogs? cont'd What makes this transgenic? When it comes to these see-through critters,
their DNA has been altered and manipulated to exemplify the recessive trait of transparency. Introduction to the Findings of the See-Through Frog - In 2007, a group of Japanese scientists of Hiroshima University worked together on this project to cut down the genocide of frogs everywhere Today, tissue specification is being observed through the observations of the ectoderm and mesoderm of transgenic tadpoles. What have we learned from this transgenic organism? - More humane research can be conveyed and uncover a whole new way of researching
- the causes of death or illness caused in these organisms can give us a better understanding and perspective of how to counteract diseases
- Few that belong to the classes osteichthyes and amphibia can be transgenically produced to be transparent. What next? They produced transgenic see-through frogs, that some critics call a break-through.
