The article is devoted to applications of 2-dimensional hyperbolic numbers and their algebraic 2n-dimensional extensions in modeling some genetic phenomena. Mathematical properties of hyperbolic numbers and their matrix representations are described in a connection with alphabets of DNA nucleobases and with inherited phyllotaxis phenomena. Known data on using hyperbolic rotations, which are particular cases of hyperbolic numbers, in physics and in some biological phenomena, including phyllotaxis laws and structural features of locomotions, are discussed. Applications of hyperbolic numbers reveal hidden interrelations between structures of different biological and physical phenomena. They lead to new approaches in mathematical modeling genetic phenomena.
