This page continues from the previous page investigating genetic mutations...
This is where the order of a particular order of genes are reversed as seen below
This is where information from one of two homologous chromosomes breaks and binds to the other. Usually this sort of mutation is lethal
The previous examples of mutation have investigated changes at the chromosome level. The sequence of nucleotides on a DNA sequence are also susceptible to mutation.
All of the genetic mutations looked at through the last 2 pages more or less have a negative impact and are undesired, however, in some cases they can prove advantageous.
Genetic mutations increase genetic diversity and therefore have an important part to play. They are also the reason many people inherit diseases.
The next page looks at polyploidy, a type of mutation that effects chromosome content of an organism, and also investigates the frequency of mutations and factors that play a part in this.
