Problems in Replication and Protein Synthesis
-mutation- random change in genetic material
-can happen during replication, transcription, translation, or cell division
-part of the DNA is deleted or inserted
-part of the DNA is duplicated
-part of the DNA is reversed
-part of the DNA is moved to a different spot
Nondisjunction- failure of homologous chromosomes to separate normally during meiosis.
