Can someone please check this defintion. What else can I put?
Mutation=change to the base pair sequence of the genetic material of an organism

What is 'Heredity'?

  • biology -

    I would add on the mutation defintion that it is a accidental change.

    Heredity:
    The process in which traits are transmitted from one generation to the next.
