  11. Outline of a risk assessment: the welfare of future xeno-donor pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Dahl, K., Sandoe, P., Johnsen, P. F., Lassen, J., Kornerup Hansen, A.

    The welfare of transgenic animals is often not considered prior to their generation. However, we demonstrated here how a welfare risk assessment can be carried out before transgenic animals are created. We describe a risk assessment identifying potential welfare problems in transgenic pigs...
