A few words about genetic variation


Siniša Franjić


Genetic variation describes the simultaneous variation of alleles of a gene in the gene pool. It occurs among populations, based on individual carriers of variant genes. It is the phenomenon that different biological systems, in the same time section, differ from each other at the level of individuals and populations. Genetic variation is caused by random mutations, which are constant qualitative or quantitative changes in the genome of a certain individual and population, belonging to a type of organism.
