Genetic Variation

All kinds of Varieties!

What is it?

Genetic Variation is the process of cells varying and becoming different from previous forms. There are three types of Genetic Variation-

1. Mutations- a chang of DNA

2. Gene Flow- The movement of a gene from one population to another

3. Sex- This can introduce a gene to a new population, creating cross-species.

Some examples of it

Finger prints are an example of neutral genetic variation

Different colors of fruits are examples of genetic variation

Cross-Species are an example because two different species combined to make a new one (horse+donkey=mule).
