lex genetica
 n.— «Just as the novel term lex informatica describes the deployment of technological constraints on electronic information as a source of policy, the neologism lex genetica expresses the same idea with respect to bioengineered constraints on genetic information. In short, “information is information, whether the medium is a double helix or an optical disk.”» —“Chen on Biodiversity” by Jim Chen Legal Theory Blog May 7, 2004.
