Science Help

Can someone explain how a mutation in an individual's DNA occurs? I have no idea.

And what is the effect it may have on the individual's traits?

This is for my study guide of science, and I suck at science, but I am to shy to ask my teacher. Yes, I know sooner or later, I will have to ask her, but I rather have it later than sooner!

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "gene mutation" to get these possible sources:

    https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=gene+mutation&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    The effect will depend on which gene(s) mutate.

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
