Animal biotechnology is used to improve food resources, to make biomedical advances and for industrial and commercial purposes. Today, the intersection of technology (genomic sequencing and computing) and biology (including cloning and regenerative medicine) bring a new sense of 'animal biotechnology,' in which new products and experimental models can be imagined and realized. With these advances come challenges regarding product safety and animal welfare, as well as proper regulation. Animal biotechnology is a continually evolving field. Regulations will continue to develop as the field develops.
