traits

 

frequency of disease epidemic

lack of efforts to prevent

much focus on genetic modification, villains often GMO companies, though neither Ghosh nor Clark say much about that

ditto for gender

 

often just an excuse to set novel in an anarchic or dystopian world for dramatic purposes

seed banks and similar “arks” and Noah references a common motif. Feels overdone.
