The genetic configurations for the different breeds are built into the product, and are normally fixed. However, it is possible to purchase a separate 'user modifiable' form of genetic configuration that is supplied as a text file, which defines the genes, alleles, and rules governing their interactions (e.g., which genotypes give rise to particular phenotypes such as coat colors).
