I think it's more likely that it's an essay question for University.

This is way too vague of a question. Perhaps this should be more of a discussion forum post. I'll change it to a forum post. I've also edited the question to be a bit more specific.

The lab I spent most of my undergrad years in does work with GAs: http://erilllab.umbc.edu/research/projects/

It's more the other way around, applying bioinformatics algorithms to genetic problems, e.g. phasing or assembly.

Given our use of heuristics and optimal solutions, I'd say the principal statement also holds true - we do use GAs.
