Trait Genes are genetic modifications in Jurassic World Evolution that can be applied to dinosaurs to increase one or more of their in-game traits. Unique genes or gene stages are unlocked on every island. The Secrets of Dr. Wu DLC added additional Trait Genes.

Description

Trait Genes come in a variety of forms and can all be applied to all dinosaurs. All genes, aside from the default Null Gene, will lower a dinosaur’s viability percentage resulting in the possibility of a failed incubation. Most genes have different stages with increased effects that can be unlocked on different islands.

Attack Genes 

These genes increase a dinosaurs attack trait.
