The mitotic process provides a mechanism by which cells should be able to transfer their genomic contents from cell generation to cell generation without error or change. is this inviolate?

  • Biology -

    No, it's not inviolate.

    For example, nondisjunction (though usually mentioned in regard to meiosis, not mitosis) can occur.
