A) Go to e.g. en.wikipedia.org or google.com

B) type in the keyword of your choice

C) pick the result that suits best for your needs

For example, at Wikipedia type in 'translocation', choose chromosomal translocation (deals with DNA) and see what it does. Or, to cover each of your topics, simply search for the term 'mutation', and you've got answers to all your terms. Just remember to double-check the Wikipedia information from, say, a good textbook if you want to be 100% sure of the answers. However, in this case I'm pretty sure even Wikipedia alone can give you reliable information as much as you need.
