Which type of mutation is likely to have the least effect on an organism?

A silent mutation


What type of mutation is likely to have the least effect on an organism?

A silent mutation has the least effect on an organism. It is when the codon is changed to the same amino acid.


Which type of mutation would be least likely to be passed on to future generations?

One that renders the organism sterile.


Give an example of how a new species can form?

One way that a new species can be formed is through a genetic mutation. If an organism is born with a mutation, this mutation can either be detrimental or beneficial. If the mutation is detrimental, the organism will more than likely die, or at the very least be less likely to reproduce. If the genetic mutation is beneficial, however, this can increase the organisms chance of survival and reproduction (an example of a beneficial mutation would be one in which the organism becomes better fitted to survive in a certain habitat). When the mutated organism reproduces, their genetic mutation will more than likely be passed on to the next generation. Through time, this can give rise to an entirely new species.


What mutation has no effect on a protein?

Most have some effect but the one that has the least chance of causing a change in the protein is a point mutation.


Which type of mutation is least likely to affect the protein?

Base substitution is a type of mutation that is least likely to affect the function of the protein corresponding to the gene in which the mutation occurs. Proteins are nitrogenous organic compounds.
