Advanced genetics is a course on subjects in genetics in the United Federation of Planets at a level just earlier than that of Starfleet Academy.

In 2366, Wesley Crusher was working on nanotechnology as part of his advanced genetics project. He studied nanites with the theory that by working together, they could combine their skills and increase their usefulness. However, his science experiment got out of hand when two nanites escaped their confinement in the science lab and began replicating on the USS Enterprise-D. The replicated nanites became intelligent and were the cause of several systems malfunctions all over the ship. (TNG: "Evolution")
