... only things that don't appear to be deterministic are quantum processes. Does quantum indeterminacy allow for mutations to be truly random i.e. indeterminate? I imagine that it could since electromagnetic radiation, which can induce mutations at high wavelengths, is a wave :?:. But I don't know ...

I can't know the outcome for certain until the experiment is conducted, but I think we would all expect their report of the experience ...
