A Call for Questions: Genetics and Writing

Hi, everybody! It’s the end of March, and April is a fifth-Saturday month, so I’m planning something special for that day. Genetics and biotechnology seem to be big premise concepts in science fiction right now (not surprising, since they’re currently undergoing a revolutionary rise), and as a genetics major, I know a bit more about these topics than most people. Further, I really like to see these things accurately represented in fiction.

This leads to the subject of today’s post. If you are a sci-fi writer, or any other kind of writer, and want to know more about something in your book, please comment with a question about genetics or biotech, what scientists do all day, what techniques are used in labs, or anything else related that you can think of. I’m happy to help with book research, and all questions will be answered in a Q & A style post on this topic on April 22nd.

So feel free to ask away!

What questions do you have? I’m eager to see them. Leave them in the comments!

  1. This is very good since I have a lot of genetics in my sci-fi as you know. 😄 I came up with a theory that in my futuristic world they have a compound called Asclepius IV which basically accelerates healing to the rate of an organ, because organs tissue heals faster than skeletal tissue, do you think that’s possible that that could actually be a thing in the future? I’m not sure how to narrow down this question since it’s so specific lol. 😄
