Genetic Mutation

Genetic Mutation is any permanent change that occurs to the genetic structure and information within the DNA molecule.  It can be an alteration of a single bond-pair.  Mutations that are passed on from parent to offspring are called hereditary mutations.  Genetic mutations can occur due to copying errors during gene replication.
