Term Definition
Genetic mutation
A natural change in the DNA at a particular locus in an organism. The term is used loosely to include point mutations (concerning a single nucleotide) as well as chromosomal changes such as translocations, deletions and inversion of larger DNA segments. Also transposable elements are responsible for mutations in various ways.
