Maya Wu is the daughter of Dr Henry Wu, the Chief Geneticist of InGen. He leads the research to recreate the dinosaurs. Taking after her father, Maya followed in his footsteps. However, she believed her father lost his way in the passion of being a Geneticist.
Thanks to Mr Masrani he allowed Maya the opportunity to prove her worth. Trying to stay true the animals natural DNA, there were some bumps in the road. Where her father tried to make a better, more terrifying creature for the theme park. She wanted to stay accurate to How the reptiles would have been. Not these hybrid creatures, but then again the public wanted entertainment, not facts.
Don't let the badge and white coat fool you. If one thing is for sure she knows just how dangerous these creatures can be. Especially when you start to fool around with their original DNA coding. Due to her first creation turning against her, she had to rethink about how to approach her career. Taking a different path for awhile she lived with a small tribe to get a better understanding of how the world works. But more importantly to study the wide variety of reptiles to see which genetic codes could possibly be used in the missing gaps of dino DNA. But it wasn’t only reptiles but birds, amphibians and even some mammals.
But then she began to appreciate what the world had now and started to question her father’s work. Big corporations wanted the biggest, meanest hybrid of creatures. But instead, she wanted to use genetic engineering to save the animals of the world today. But when money talks, it can change a person.
