Genetic
Poswa doesnt distinguish adjectives, but the word for genes in general is
papopama,
from a metaphor involving a wheel sliding down a slope. You'd add -s to indicate the genitive, which would correspond to the English adjective in some constructions, but it gets complicated .... for example, in expressions like papopavo marombo "I'm genetically immune", the word is in the nominative case but also marked for its 1st person possessor.

next: scholar, educated person
Sorry guys, this one has the worst sting.

Nlokian:

Koahho [kʟ̝̊ɐˈɧːɤ̞] - "throat, pharynx".
Also Hubenkēa [ˈɧɯβ̝enˌke̞.ɐ] - (lit. "the one by means of which (you) breath") rather for trachea or larynx.

Next please...
Entropy.
*I know it's a tough one (perhaps not for everyone!). I 'm just curious on which metaphors or technicisms would your conlangs use for such a term...
