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.

34) This remarkable increase of M694V mutation rate in AS patients compared to healthy individuals is associated with the fact that M694V mutation is seen in cases which show the highest penetration and most severe clinical course compared to other mutations.
The slower mutation rate wasn't expected," says evolutionary biologist Adam Boyko of Cornell University.

5 provides an auto-mutation rate adjustment option to increase the mutation rate automatically when the best solution remains the same over an extended number of trials.
At the design phase of the ICGC, it was deemed important that each project would have the power to detect mutated genes at the 3% level, a level that is higher than the background mutation rate (estimated to be less than 1 mutation per gene for a sample size of 500).
There are some combination among number of generation, population, crossover rate, and mutation rate to find the optimal solution.
Mutation rate was also slowing, he said, as one of the most important triggers was advanced age in men.
It did slow the convergence rate, but only after the mutation rate was raised to an absurdly high level.
On the basis of the analysis above, we know that there are four major preparatory steps required to use the genetic algorithm in solving a problem with GA; (ii) the fitness measure, which is the foundation of evaluating and selecting the individuals; (iii) three genetic operators, which are the search mechanisms to form the new population from generation to generation and (iv) some evolutionary parameters, such as the mutation rate [p.
