On the Pacific coast, gene modification and grown biotech is embraced as the key to humanity's survival in the post-climate change world, while on the Atlantic coast, it's banned and cybernetics is the go-to future tech,

* Spiderweb Software's ''VideoGame/{{Geneforge}}'' is this meets DungeonPunk. The majority of people use [[OrganicTechnology Organic]] {{Magitek}}, which is exclusively produced by TheMagocracy whose members are called Shapers. The process usually involves heavily modifying existing animals, plants and fungi. Oddly for a Bio Punk world (or any kind of PunkPunk as dark as Geneforge), the system enforced by Shaper control starts out between 'real life Democracy' and 'Post-Cyberpunk' in how bad it is despite being an Oligarchy; the one good trait they possess as a group is recognising the responsibility behind the power to create life (they have all the right protocols to quarantine an island like it was an ''[=SCP=]'' while remaining as humane as the real life CDC or WHO), and the main character is always a Shaper themselves working within the system as best they can... and then as the Shaper's creations go steadily out of control over the series, causing everything to get worse instead of better.
* The ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' setting has this as part of its backstory with the creation of the titular Gears, genetically and magically engineered living weapons that were eventually hijacked and controlled into revolting, leading to [[TheGreatOffscreenWar The Crusades]]. Even in the present, where most of the Gears have been wiped out, there are still some that continue to pop up and cause trouble. In fact, protagonist Sol Badguy is both one of the original creators of the Gears and the original [[SuperPrototype Prototype Gear.]]

* There was once an obscure novel one cannot recall the title or author of, in which the solar system has been heavily terraformed and constructed lifeforms, or cyborgs created from such, are the majority of technology in the story. The story opens with a woman leaving her bioengineered house wearing a living cloak descended from a fox, using a cyborg tractor to work a field before coming home to find her house is dead, along with its occupants. The system is connected not just by an extended internet, but a second one that holds the minds of people who have voluntarily been absorbed into its terminals, due to a law which forbids people living too long (lest they go insane in a very literal sense) in order that the person, now integrated into a matrix along with all the other departed minds, can still be with us even though not alive. One of the protagonists has bio-engineered children. One of them follows him as he leaves to follow a lead across the system, and when they steal a prison bioship, it becomes indignant that suddenly it has to provide a dessert through its icky delivery tubes. One moon even has cities mostly grown out of huge trees. The climax is a battle with a faction who wish to take over the system and go truly off the scale with the biotech.

* ''Film/DarkCity'' has a primarily DieselPunk aesthetic, but dips heavily into Bio Punk when it hits the story points about [[spoiler:artificial manipulation of memories and aliens playing PuppeteerParasite with human corpses]]. The creators of ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock}}'' have named it as a primary aesthetic influence on their games.

* TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} has similar stuff, albeit -at least in the rulebook- in considerably less numbers than Cyberware and like the latter [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul cost Humanity Points]].
