The terms phylogeny, individual and gene pool are included not because 
they are part of the terminology of genetic editing, but because they are 
the terminology of genetics and is used to help people understand in 
why "genetic editing" uses the word "genetic"

Similarly "ordered trees" is used to link a concept in genetic editing to 
one in computer science.

I searched on google and couldn't find a definition in the first three 
pages of hits. If it's not on google, it doesn't exist as far as I'm concerned. 
If you have a URL to a definition, I'd be more than happy to add it to the 
wiki page.

I have updated the page somewhat, hopefully this is an improvement.
