According to Hammond, the geneticists in the lab and the software they’re using is “The Real Deal”.
It is a piece of software intended to view and manipulate dino DNA into a format that (presumably) can be turned into viable dinosaur embryos. The screen is tilted away from us during viewing, and we aren’t able to see the extensive menu and labeling system on the left hand side of the desktop.
Behind it are more traditional microscopes, lab machines, and centrifugal separators.
Visible on the screen is a large pane with a 2D rendering of a 3d object that is the DNA that is being manipulated. It is a roughly helical shape, with the green stripes corresponding to the protein structure, and various colored dots representing the information proteins in between.
A technician manipulates the orientation of the protein strand. We only see him holding his hands to move the object around, we see no gestures that correlate to actual changes to the protein structure. It seems like direct manipulation, but reorienting isolated DNA in space is not really the work of a genetics lab. How do they connect the dinosaur DNA that they find with Amphibian DNA that is needed to fill the holes? Can’t we see that?
Maybe it’s asking too much for the movie to show an in-depth interface for actual genetic modification, considering the complexity of such a feat. Even if we did ask it, we don’t see any evidence of a useful interface here. I don’t even want to go into the analysis of this, except to say that there isn’t any representation to analyze for either how appropriate or how abysmal this interface is. It’s just a disposable gee-whiz won’t-the-future be cool moment.
