Explanation:
Just couple of more debatable ideas, Mona:

muHassana intajiyyan/wirathiyyan
mu'addala fi tarkeebiha al-wirathiyy
mughayyaratu al-khaSaa-iS al-mawrutha
mu'addalatu at-takween

That's it...for the time being.

al mouaddala jinyyan or al mouaddala wirathyan


Explanation:
we're using the first answer as the word "jinyyan" is started to be used more and more frequently.

you may take the other option as a conservative classical answer.

i don't approve with the former formula of "mouhandasa wirathian" because the real meaning is that there was a modification in the genetic structure (handasa) and every gene is structured anyway

Nabataat mu-'addalah wiraathiyyan


Explanation:
Dear Mona,

I personally RESIST the easy way out of Arabicizing --I first try my darnest to find a PROPER Arabic translation (if it looks or sounds 'odd,' I put the 'foreign' word after it in parenthesis).

Thus, I'd use wirathiyya --even taTawworiyya or khilqiyya--before resorting to jiniyya.

Best regards.
