Mutations

  • 0:03 - 0:03
    >> Laura, no!
  • 0:03 - 0:04
    >> Wait Laura, what are you doing?
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    >> I'm just trying to give you superpowers, like the Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • 0:08 - 0:10
    >> No, that much mutation that fast is just going to kill me.
  • 0:10 - 0:12
    >> Wait well, I'll just do it slowly.
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    >> No, no, no. Even if you go slower, you won't
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    kill me. But, I'm not going to get psychic powers, or anything
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    like you read about in graphic novels. I mean, at best
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    I might be lactose tolerant or resistant to malaria and HIV.
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    >> Sounds pretty good to me.
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    >> But, but, you can't control where the mutation's happen when you do it,
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    I mean, there's a trade off. With malaria
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    it can cause anemia and kill you that way.
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    >> Maybe I'll just put the ooze down then.
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    >> Yeah, and I mean, mutations are already happening all the time
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    anyhow, replication errors, UV damage from the sun, and so much more.
  • 0:43 - 0:46
    >> God it sounds like dangerous business just existing.
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    >> Oh, it is. In this lesson, we're going to
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    learn all about how mutation and variation happen in the first
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    place and how they spread throughout the population over many generations.
  • 0:56 - 0:57
    >> Matt, Matt, this sounds like a
  • 0:57 - 1:01
    science fiction movie with mutations spreading through populations.
  • 1:01 - 1:03
    >> Well, it kind is except we're going to talk
  • 1:03 - 1:07
    about real mutation. Knowing what you know about the human genome,
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    the composition of coding and non-coding regions, tell me right now
  • 1:10 - 1:15
    if you think most mutations would be advantageous, detrimental, or neutral.
