Related to DNA mutations: genetic mutation

MUTATION, French law. This term is synonymous with change, and is particularly applied to designate the change which takes place in the property of a thing in its transmission from one person to another; permutation therefore happens when, the owner of the thing sells, exchanges or gives it. It is nearly synonymous with transfer. (q.v.) Merl. Repert. h.t.

Furthermore, he stated, "By combining PGI's technologies of pooling and CDCE with Beckman Coulter's genetic analysis platforms, rapid and cost effective automated discovery of DNA mutations of low frequency will be possible for large populations.
The idea that DNA mutations cause disease is common knowledge today largely thanks to one study published in 1978 by Y.
The fact that the intratumoral DNA mutations vary considerably (DNA analysis of the same tumor from different locations within the primary tumor) and intertumoral DNA analysis (DNA samples of the same type of tumor from different patients) also varies significantly should make it clear to the most casual observer that we are barking up the wrong tree.
