DNA, Mutations And Mitosis Quiz

This quiz is to determine if you know the pairing of DNA structure. Also, it lets you know the difference between replication and when mutation occurs. It changes the DNA structure and protein is produced. Finally, you are preparing youself for mitosis and the stages that occur in this phase.
