Specific examples of genetic modifications could include knocking out the triacylglycerol synthetase gene (clearly an extreme example) so that the cow would produce skim milk or the genetic addition of lactase to the secretory cells of the mammary gland, which is an experiment that already has been conducted in a mouse, to produce a lactose-decreased or a lactose-free milk.
