We control their chromosomes. It's really not that difficult. All vertebrate embryos are inherently female anyway, they just require an extra hormone given at the right developmental stage to make them male. We simply deny them that.

These words from Dr. Henry Wu in Jurassic Park set the tone for the hubris that would ultimately lead to the destruction of the park and John Hammond's dreams.

Wu's was a small - but pivotal - role in the movie, and we are set to learn more about the expert in de-extinction after Jurassic World helmer, Colin Trevorrow, confirmed the character is to return for the new movie:

This hasn’t been announced yet, but BD Wong will be returning as Dr. Henry Wu. He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction. He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.

Despite only having a couple of lines in Jurassic Park, Wu was a much more influential character in Micheal Crichton's source material - a brilliant scientist who had to live in the shadow of Hammond's personality. The fact he was also one of the few speaking characters not to have died a horrible death in JP is another advantage he holds over many of the others. It will be fascinating to see what he's been up to all these years since the events on Isla Nublar.
