Genes are segments of DNA molecules. Any alteration of the DNA sequence is a mutation. Usually, an altered gene will be passed on to every cell that develops from it.
Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and living environment and recognize the historical development of ideas in science.
Organisms inherit genetic information in a variety of ways that result in continuity of structure and function between parents and offspring.
Explain how the structure and replication of genetic material result in offspring that resemble their parents.
