Transgenic Animals "How To"

Here is a link to a very informative website on the technology behind making transgenic animals. The website covers two different methods of producing transgenic mice including the embryonic stem cell method and the pronucleus method. It also covers random versus targeted gene insertion, tissue specific knockout mice using cre, lox-p and finishes with a section on transgenic shhep, goats,chickens, pigs and even primates (I didn't know this technology was even available.)
Its a very cool website.
