For questions about the fictitious in-universe genetic engineering found in works of speculative fiction. Questions purely concerning real-world genetic engineering are off-topic.
Use this tag if your question is about the fictional genetic engineering found in the universe of a work of science fiction or fantasy. Note that this site is about fiction, not about real-world genetic engineering. Expect answers based on internal consistency or author fiat (‘Word of God’).
If your question is about:
- how the in-universe genetic engineering relates to real-world genetic engineering, ask here, but do not necessarily expect answers from experts on real-world genetic engineering.
- real-world genetic engineering, your question is off-topic here. You might consider asking on the Biology Stack Exchange.
