The overall purpose of breeding to create a see-through frog was done in order to benefit students, and the organisms themselves. Often, frogs are used for visual labs in schools, colleges, etc. Therefore scientists wanted to create a frog that could be used as a model without being dissected in order to observe its organs, blood vessels, and structure.
