SNV vs point mutation?

Postby jomjamson » Sat Jan 11, 2014 5:51 am

My professor seems to distinguish an SNP from an SNV from a point mutation.
I seemed to think that an SNV and a point mutation were the same thing.
So, what is the difference between a "single nucleotide variant" (SNV) and a point mutation?
I can't seem to get it.

I'd say the difference is in the frequency in population. However, I cannot find any info on that now.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
