It can be argued that the legal arena was the main stage where disputes over transgenics occurred, since the popular mobilization and participation were limited.
This technology, however, still has as the major constrains the low efficiency generation of transgenics. To improve the efficiency of selection of transgenics, genetic markers are co-injected with the transgene to monitor for transformed zygotes.
