There are many types of mutations that a worksheet can use. Mutations are the name given to changes that occur when a part of your DNA gets mixed up. When this happens, it is said that the mutation occurred. Because there are so many types of mutations that occur in the human genome, it is important to know which ones to look for in a list of possible changes.
The first type of mutation is the insertion mutation. This is the most common type of mutation because it occurs when two different bases come together and stick to each other. When this happens, the nucleotide at one end has the same amino acid as the one at the other end.
The second type of mutation is the insertion/deletion mutation. This occurs when two identical bases are switched. If they are both on the same side of the chromosome, then the mutation will not be expressed. If they are on opposite sides of the chromosome, then the mutation will be expressed and you will get the results that you see on your cell.
The third type of mutation is the covalent modification. This occurs when an adenine gets stuck to the cytosine of a chromosome. This causes a change in the structure of the chromosome. When this happens, it is not reversible. This type of mutation is commonly called an inactivated allele.
A fourth type of mutation is called the rapid substitution. This occurs when a single base is replaced with another base. The results will depend on which of the three types of mutations is happening. It will depend on whether it is a whole base or a codon.
The last type of mutation is the covalent modification. This is used in a worksheet that is testing the DNA of a person. These types of mutations have no effect on the mutation status of the individual.
The type of mutation that is most commonly used in a worksheet is the insertion type. This is because it can be difficult to find a mutation in a human genome that would be found only in the insertion type. For example, if a person’s DNA code was in the form of a barcode, it would be impossible to find a mutation that changed the barcode in a certain way.
The methods that a worksheet uses to detect which mutations are present and what the results are depending on which type of mutation is being tested. It will depend on how many bases are changed. It will also depend on what type of nucleotide is changing.
