Species-specific description: You et al. (2021): "pigs were genetically modified with multiple genes that were precisely inserted into the pRosa26 locus by using the clustered regularly spaced short palindrome repeat sequence (CRISPR)/CRISPR-related 9 (Cas9) system and somatic cell nuclear transfer technology (SCNT) in combination. Single copies of the Fat-1 and IGF-1 genes were expressed satisfactorily in various tissues of F0-generation pigs. Importantly, gas chromatography analysis revealed a significantly increased n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) level in these genetically modified pigs, which led to a significant decrease of the n-6 PUFA/n-3 PUFA ratio from 6.982 to 3.122 (*** p < 0.001)."

This phene includes references to studies involving genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
