Gene Mutations and DNA repair

Gene Mutation and DNA repair Mutation can happen during the recombination or replication. It is the permanent change that happens to the sequence of the DNA in the nucleotide. The cause of mutation within the DNA can be due to insertion of base pair, deletion or substitution. Mutations are not harmful until they cause a tumor or cell death. The fatal outcomes of the gene mutation are the reason that DAN repair is important. Before understanding DNA repair, it is important that we understand the Read more [...]

DNA replication

What is DNA?          DNA stands for Deoxyriobo-Nucleic-Acid, a complex molecule that contains each and every information necessary to build and maintain organisms. All living beings have DNA within their cells. More interestingly, nearly every cell in a multi-cellular living organism possesses the full set of DNA required for that organism.DNA does a lot more than only specifying the structure and function of living things - it also serves as the primary unit of heredity in all Read more [...]
