I’m studying for my Biology class and need an explanation.
DNA mutations can be created at the time of replication. Ideally, they are fixed quickly, but sometimes errors are caught later. How are mismatches (eg: C-A pairs) recognized by the cell? (3 points) Describe how a mismatch could be fixed immediately during replication (3 points). Describe how the same mutation could be fixed if it was discovered after replication but before division (4 points).
