    How to use "Mutation" in context?

    Mutations are change in the DNA that leads to the development of a new gene or the conversion of one gene into another. Changes can be caused by radiation, chemicals, or malfunctions in the cell nucleus. Mutation can happen in any part of the DNA molecule, but it is most commonly found in the genes that control the structure and function of proteins. There are several types of mutations, but the most common are base pair substitutions (replacement of one nucleotide with another), indels (insertions or deletions of short sections of DNA), and translocations (transfer of DNA segments from one location to another).
