1985, Jeffries 1987). Scientists believe that the existence of such genetic variation provides flexibility for evolution to proceed in a changing environment. A fixed inflexible mechanism for storing and retrieving genetic information would be likely to doom a species to eventual extinction. Less is known about the amount of genetic variation between the somatic cells within individuals, but the available evidence (for example, see, Hall 1988) suggests that such variation is limited, the process of mitotic cell division replicating cellular genotypes with incredibly high precision.

Again, each somatic cell has two allelic insulin genes at corresponding sites in each chromosome #11. Individuals with two identical alleles are said to be homozygous at the relevant locus. An individual with two copies of the normal beta globin gene HbßA would have the genotype HbβAHbβA. Individuals with sickle cell anaemia are homozygous for the mutant gene HbßS and have the genotype HbβSHbβS. Each of these alleles differs from the normal allele by a single base substitution in the fifth codon of the first exon (see Fig.

1982). The activated oncogene found in human bladder cancer is capable of transforming mouse cells in vitro. However, it will not transform normal human cells, so additional events must occur to give rise to these cancers. 2 kb) (Fig. 11). (S denotes Svedberg units which are measures of sedimentation properties after ultracentrifuga-tion). Unlike most genes (including the beta-globin gene) which occur in only a single copy in each set of human chromosomes, these genes for rRNA occur as clusters of tandemly repeated, near-identical sequences (Planta & Meyerink 1980).
