Transgenic animals are the key material to study that how genes are regulated, and how they affect the normal functions of the body and its development, e.g. study of complex factors involved in growth such as insulin-like growth factor. The introduction of genes from other species that alter the formation of this factor and studying the biological effects that result, information is obtained about the biological role of the factor in the body.
