Homework Help: Genetic Mutations

  1. Feb 25, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What do you call a mutation that changes the G nucleotide of the mRNA, which was transcribed from a mutated DNA?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I believe the answer is a point mutation, more specifically nonsense since no protein is produced.

    I guess the answer that they are wanting from you is of form "a X → Y (point) mutation"
