Sample Text:
- Mutations are the source of the altered versions of genes that provide the raw material for evolution. - Most mutations have no effect on the organism, especially among the eukaryotes, because a large portion of the DNA is non coding (does not code for proteins). - Of the mutations that do affect the phenotype, the most common effect of mutations is lethality, because most genes are necessary for life. - Only a small percentage of mutations causes a visible but non-lethal change in the phenotype. - Rarely, they can enhance the function of a protein = evolution. Germ-line V Somatic Mutation - Mutations can occur in any cell. They only affect future generations if they occur in the cells that produce the gametes: these are “germinal” or “germ line” mutations. - Somatic cell mutations occur only in the affected body cell and the daughter cells produced by mitosi...
