Why is a gametic mutation worse than a somatic mutation?
A somatic mutation will only affect the organism which already contains that mutation and will not pass that mutation to its offspring. A gametic mutation may not affect the organism which contains the mutation, but that mutation may or will be passed to its offspring, where the mutation might be, or can be expressed.

Asked in Genetics
A nucleotide sequence changes from attcgg to atcgg what type of mutation occurred?
There are 3 types of mutations that are possible. Insertion Substitution Deletion If we use a bit of logic and knowledge to figure out what each action does, then we can find out the answer. Insertion will the Insert. Substitution will be Substitute. Deletion will be Delete. To insert would mean to put into. To substitute would mean to replace. To delete would mean to take away. Using that knowledge we can assume that the type of mutation that occurred is deletion.

What is mutation theory of evolution?
The mutation theory is basically stating that mutation is one of the major factors that cause evolution. The mutation has to be a beneficial mutation, meaning that it has to help the survival of the organism that got the mutation. The mutation causes knew genes and diversity which can spread quickly throughout a population and eventually change the frequency of alleles (causes mutation) Remember the mutation has to be beneficial to the survival of the organism.
