Evolution has a lot to do with gene alteration among different individuals in a species and how those traits get passed on to their offspring over thousands of generations and how eventually this leads to the evolution of a completely different species that cannot interbreed with the previous. From our molecular genetics and DNA & protein synthesis units, how do genes alter? What are the different ways that they can be altered? How do these alterations affect what proteins are made and what genes are turned on and off? Explain the differences between changes in the genome and epigenome. Explain how all these genetic alterations lead to the process of evolution.
