This strategy is from Yo It's Spicy. I just made it a step-by-step guide and tested that it works on the Xbox One version as well.

Note: If you need to unlock all the genes you can exploit the save system. Just play a casual/normal difficulty game and when you're about to win save the game. When you win just load up the save and you get another win. You unlock a random gene every time you win a game.
Note 2: If you don't get this on first try just try it again. Each game is different and even if you load a game from save file the rest of the game plays differently than last time. The game has a lot of different variables that affect your gameplay.
