  • Psychology
  • Aerobic/ Anaerobic Respiration
  • Mutations
  • the changing of the structure of a gene, resulting in a varying form that may be transmitted to generations, caused by the alteration of single base unit in DNA, or the deletion, insertion, or rearrangement of larger sections of genes or chromosomes
  • In simpler terms: A change in DNA
  • Mutations occur on a daily basis
  • Mutations can cause common diseases such as cancer
  • Mutations can be good and bad
  • Mutations can be inherited, acquired, and man-made
  • Acquired mutations can’t be passed down
  • Man-made mutations are typically used for scientific research
