🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor McAllister's class at IOWA.

Solution: Base substitution mutations and frame-shift mutations: If a segment of DNA were replicated without any errors, the replicated strand would have the following sequence of nucleotides: 5' - ACTACGTGA - 3' Sort the following replicated DNA sequences by the type of point mutation each contains (frame-shift, base substitution, or neither), as compared to the correct sequence shown above. Sort the items into the appropriate bins.
