Wasn't sure if this was better suited to the physics forum or biology forum, but I feel like it applies more to biology. A query commonly posed amidst my thoughts is what would happen should, by any means possible, exotic matter such as hypernuclei be present in one's gene structure.

What are your thoughts?
