Mutagenesis a process by which an organism is genetically changed resulting in a mutation which is a change in the dna sequence of a gene it may occur naturally for example due to natural exposure to ultraviolet uv light or chemicals or it can happen deliberately for the purpose of increasing genetic variation of a species.
dna dna organic chemical of complex molecular structure found in all prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells it codes genetic information for the transmission of inherited traits the structure of dna was described in 1953 leading to further understanding of dna replication and hereditary control of cellular activities.
