Ive always wondered if unlocking the human genome would open weapons that kill along racial lines. Race isnt a social construct, but a very real set of isolated genetic traits. Certain diseases already show preference for certain genetic vulnerabilities, and this could be adapted to wipe out entire human branches, while effectively passing over the assailant population.

Of course, this works right up to the time it mutates, and own goal scenarios pop up.

An ethnostate, like China or Israel could develop a strain that targets their enemies, but a civ-nat state like the US or most Western countries couldnt do this, because of own goal issues, lest the cat get out of the bag that the US was targeting, say Han Chinese or Africans.

If I had state resources, and a desire to genocide with ease and precision, it seems like the logical choice.

I think European ethno groups are particularly vulnerable to this, since the above scenario exists.
