Genetic manipulation in Rorqual Maru (1972) Galaxy, Volume 32 No.4[edit]

In: Rorqual Maru (1971, UPD Publishing Corp. / Galaxy, Volume 32 No.4)

   Any geneticists out there? 
     -How accurately does Bass use technical terms and procedures in his descriptions of genetic engineering?
     -If accurate, was it the latest available info in 1971?  Did he make any really good guesses?
     -A brief discussion of the history of this field as imagined/used/anticipated in SF would be interesting 
        (under topic: Science Fiction ?) I'll bet a bunch of us have our favorites; like RAH's Jerry Was A Man 
        (Thrilling Wonder Stories, October 1947 & Assignment in Eternity, Signet, 1953)) or Varley's Uplift novels.
        (Text of Rorqual Maru also avlbe in: 1973 ANNUAL WORLD'S BEST SF (₢ 1973 & Ed. Donald Wollheim) pp 155-191.)
