Take genetics elective as an elective?

I'm a biological engineering major planning on minoring in math/physics and computational neuroscience. I'm planning on taking a cell bio and neuroscience class as BIO SCI electives, but I'm wondering if genetics would be useful. Genetics is a prerequisite for cell bio but it isn't necessarily REQUIRED, and I don't want to waste time taking something I won't find useful. Currently, I'm interested in going to graduate school for something relating to neuroengineering, computational neuroscience, or something else related to bioelectricity and computation. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't genetics mainly be useful for biomolecular engineering or something similar? Even for something like computational genomics, is the formal genetics background even necessary?

Appreciate the advice
