Biogenetic engineering

The product of biogenetic engineering.[1]

Biogenetic engineering or genetic experimentation was a branch of genetics and engineering that involved the manipulation of an organism with biotechnology.[2]

At Lucus Institute in the year 1983, there was an attempt to use the genes of cats to genetically improve human eyesight. The result of their genetic experimentation however, transformed them, and anyone that they scratched with their claws into humanoid felines. Luckily, El Dorado was able to reverse this genetic alteration with an antidote created by Batman, who was an expert in molecular biology.[3]

Circa 1990s: Superboy was created by Project Cadmus, being the product of biogenetic engineering himself, as he was a clone that had the genetic material of both Superman and Lex Luthor.[4]

The reason Starhavenites have wings was due to genetic experimentation.[5]

It was believed that the Daxamites had held the leading edge in the field in the 30th century.[6]
