    A definition of the term "mutation theory" is presented. It is a term used in biology proposed by Dutch botanist Hugo de Vries. This is the theory that new forms of living things can occur suddenly in a population. These randomly occurring genetic mutations may result in new species, or may...

  • Homozygous. Vohr, Hans-Werner // Encyclopedic Reference of Immunotoxicology;2005, p291 

    A definition of the term "homozygous" is presented. It refers to a state in which both copies of a given gene are identical. In knockout mice, this state occurs in animals with the engineered null mutation as well as in wild type animals.

    Abstract  Variation from new mutations is important for several questions in quantitative genetics. Key parameters are the genomic mutation rate and the distribution of effects of mutations (DEM), which determine the amount of new quantitative variation that arises per generation from...
