Insertion

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

An insertion is a type of chromosomal abnormality in which a DNA sequence is inserted into a gene, disrupting the normal structure and function of that gene. Insertion is generally the most dangerous type of genetic mutation, as it can shift every gene. This can cause every gene to be read wrong and can cause serious problems.
