Species-specific description: This animal model of a human disease has been created via transgenic "blastocysts produced by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) . . . [being] vitrified and thawed at high efficiency . . . [resulting in] in live births". The resultant animals are, therefore, genetically-modified organisms (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Yes - variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
