So once we have the transgene transgenic animals on the ground we do further characterise them. First we go back to basic PCR just to confirm the transgene is there. We are also interested in knowing how many copies of the transgene are present, where within the genome the transgene has incorporated, whether it’s into one position or multiple. As for looking at protein levels, we definitely look at that, the levels of protein expressed within the milk.
