Announcement: This Saturday at The Science Circle - "The Rest is Silence"


"The Rest Is Silence"

Saturday February 6,

10 AM to 11 AM SL time

Silent mutations are changes in the DNA of a protein-coding gene that do not result in a change in the encoded protein.  How can silent mutations occur?  How can you detect a silent mutation?  How frequent are silent mutations relative to mutations that produce an amino acid change? Are silent mutations really silent?  This presentation will address these and other questions about silent mutations.
