Mutations which do not occur in sex cells are not passed on to the next generation. The mutation will only affect the individual. They could therefore have normal offspring.

A mutation can be called a deformity, because a mutation is passed on, it is like a gene being passed down the pedigree, and in the pedigree there can be a deformity that will be passed on to the next generation. :.

A mutation taking place in brain cell can't be passed on to next generation but it may cause a tumor .

The DNA replicates with the mutation on it, spreading it

Be passed on to the next generation if the organism that has the mutation in its sex cell gas progeny.

Mutations not only change the DNA, but a change to the DNA will change the mRNA. This explains why a mutation in one generation can be passed on to the next generation.

sex cells, because it can pass the genetic trait from one generation to the next

Potentially, any genetic mutation can be passed on...... i think to tell you the truth WOT THE HELLL U ON ABOUT

For a mutation to be passed onto the next generation it must be on sex chromosome. If mutation occurs in somatic cells of our body, it will not be passed on to the offspring(s). Mutation that changes one or few base pairs in the DNA is called point mutation.

It is not only true but mutations in the gametes are the only mutations that can be passed on to the next generation. Any somatic mutations you have will die with you.

Gametic mutation occurs in sex cells and is passed on to the next generation, and this can become a sex-linked recessive disorder; hemophilia is an example. Somatic mutations occur in body cells - non sex cells - so changes are vnot passed on to future generations.

Culture is passed on to the next generation by sharing and exposing the next generation to that culture. Educating and sharing are the top methods that encourage culture to be passed on from one generation to the next.

Extremely destructive mutation generally lead to the death of the person and hence can not be passed the next generation.

its more significant because if it happens in a sperm or egg cell, it can be passed on to the next generation.

When a trait is dominant, it is most likely to be passed on to the next generation.

Mutations that occur during gametogenesis (formation of egg and sperm) are called germ-line mutations. They are more significant than somatic mutations (which occur in body cells) because they can be transmitted to the next generation whereas somatic mutations are not transmitted to the next generation.

If the mutation were in the gametes. Male and female reproductive cells.

If the mutation happens in the germ cells, only then it wil be passed on to the offsprings. But, if it happens in some other cell, then it won't be. Such a mutation is Superficial. Like, if we cut the tail of a mouse, no change occurs in the germ cells. So the next generation will still be born with a tail.

Traits are passed from one generation to the next through DNA. They can also be passed by what the person observes his or her elders doing.

the correct answer of being passed on from one generation to the next in ONE WORD is...inherited

yup, if that person reproduces and that particular chromosome(s) are selected

The term "genetic disease" refers to a disease that is inherited- or passed from one generation to the next.

If a person has a gene for lets say diabetes then it will be passed on to the next generation through reproduction. even if a person does not have diabetes but carries the gene for it the next generation might carry on too.

Mutation and natural selection both lead to changes in the next generation and ultimately lead to evolution.

Through mutations in DNA. If a mutation is beneficial and helps the organism survive it is passed on to the next generation which leads to the evolution of a species causing it to change.
