State of biotechnology in the Sector
« on: June 13, 2014, 05:43:43 PM »

We already know that computer programming is still a vibrant field in the Sector but UACs and autofactories are somewhat irreplaceable.  And "terraforming nanites" may not be present at all anymore.

But what about biotechnology?  Were humans genetically modified before the collapse and is that hereditary?  What kinds of genetic modifications might have been done to crops to adapt them to grow easily on space stations?  Are there bioweapons?  Have pets like dogs been genetically modified?

Is medicine an area that is still vibrant or is it dependent on UACs?

i realize what im concerned with is entirely fluff but i wonder if animals even made it out into this sector, i mean standard earth animals, cats and dogs. in olden days ship's often had one or two cats to keep down pests like rats and such. and my civilian captain could never command a ship without a dog around to keep morale up. dogs are awesome.

Also I totally had the name BEFORE the cruiser.
