West Genetics (ウエストゼネティックス Uesto Zenetikkusu) is one of two Genetics military academies operated by the Chevalier in Japan, whose purpose is to train Pandora and Limiter soldiers to fight against the Nova.
Following the 13th Nova Clash, West Genetics has become the headquarters for Gengo Aoi's coup against the Chevalier.
West Genetics was founded on April 3, 2050 at the behest of Gengo Aoi. The academy was created with a focus on developing new technology and equipment. To that end, it was selected to be the resting place of Maria Lancelot. The creation of the academy was initially met with resistance from the Chevalier, who disliked the fact that Japan alone would maintain two separate Genetics facilities, though Gengo pushed the establishment of the academy through regardless.
Every year, West Genetics holds a joint Anti-Nova training session with its other Japanese counterpart, East Genetics. In the manga, the academy is simply called West Genetics, whilst in the anime it has the formal name of Military Academy West Japan Genetics.
- West Genetics is the primary location for the manga and anime, as well as the spin-off series First Chronicles, Freezing: Zero, and Freezing Pair Love Stories.
- Located within West Genetics is the Ravensbourne Nucleotide, which contains the body of the first Pandora: Maria Lancelot.
- West Genetics is located on a large island surrounded by water, which according to Leonard Schweitzer, is artificially created.
"Current Students" is a term used for cadets who are attending West Genetics at the year of 2065.
