Reading through the rules, I had a question about when the results of the Environment card in regards to Gene Effects are applied.

Do Gene Effects only occur during Phase 2 : Environment and Gene Defects, or does the limit on the Mutation Points on your Gene Cards apply throughout the entire Round?

That is, since Phase 3 : New Genes comes after Phase 2 : Environment and Gene Defects, could you do the following :

1) During Phase 2, an Environment card with 6 Ozone Layer thickness is turned up.
2) During Phase 2, you only have one Gene Card, with a Mutation Point listing of 5, so no Gene Defects occur.
3) During Phase 3, could you purchase another Gene Card, with a Mutation Point listing of 4, bringing your total to 9 points? Or would the Ozone Layer thickness of 6 force you to stay below 6 even after Phase 2 had passed for that round?

Thanks!

Mutation points are checked only immediately after the Environment card is turned up. You are very free to go over this limit later in the round without penalty.
