Theres a lot of mention of being unable to modify the DNA of adult organisms, but there are a series of experiments using viruses to modify the DNA of adult animals. ranging from giving colour sight to colour blind monkeys,

and making remote controllable mice by making their brains seceptable to certain colours of light.

I'm not sure how to edit a trope, So thought I'd give the information source so someone else can do it.

Does anyone have a firm idea on how to write this trope's Playing With page? I would've done it myself, if I had the slightest idea on how to play with this trope in the first place.
