"You may draw up to three DNA cards to the DNA Market first."

Does this mean you can fill currently empty spots in the market? Or can you discard any of the 3 cards in the market that you don't like and then fill up the market again? And if you can get rid of cards, do they go to the discard pile or to the Boneyard?

Move them right, as if you had sold DNA to the market normally.

Thanks! As it turns out, I was playing it correctly but then second-guessed myself.

Second question: What does it mean "for half their current cost (round up)"?
If the DNA Market contains a Stegosaurus and two Triceratops, normally I'd pay 4 + 3 + 1 = 8 to buy them all. So with Black Market, do I pay half of 8 (so 4), or do I pay (2 + 1.5^ + 0.5^) = 5 because I round up all the prices individually? Or do I pay (2 + 1.5^ + 1.5^-2) = 4 because I halve the last price before subtracting the 2 discount? Or does Black Market not respect the discount at all?

Black Market does use the discount but it is applied first since it is looking at its current cost.

Stegosaurus $4
Triceratops $3
Triceratops $1

With the black market card this becomes:

Stegosaurus $2
Triceratops $2
Triceratops $1 (half of 1 rounded up is still 1)

$5 to buy everything.
