DNA Replication and Meiosis Mutations Model

Posted on Apr 11, 2016 in Biology, Meiosis and Mutations

Target:  Understand how various mutations occur during DNA replication and meiosis (crossing over & sorting). How:  Work through a model simulating no mutations, then simulate mutations.  Draw each mutation that is simulated. Content for simulations: When mutations occur: 1. DNA Replication copy errors (Interphase) a. base substitution (can result in silent mutation) b. insertion or […]
