Gene Mutations and Repair Mechanisms of the Human Cell

  • Instructor: Erica Sandoval
  • Lectures: 6
  • Students: 2590
  • Duration: 10 weeks

Mutations are associated with diseases and defective genes. Mutated genes are actually the cause of many diseases, although they are also necessary. Without a permanent change in the genome, evolution is not possible, and purely static DNA would prevent any development. DNA is also the only molecule of the cell that is repaired. The information stored in the DNA is so important that the energy expended by repairing it is worthwhile. The cell must find the correct balance between the loss of evolution by mutation, and evolution by mutation.
