An entry for the Challenge cafe competion “The butterfly effect”

At our most basic level; humans are built, controlled and maintained by the genetic code DNA.
It’s what makes us individual and gives all of us unique characteristics.
However, what happens when there is an alteration in a tiny portion of the sequence ….as tiny as a single letter being replaced for another? The effects of a mutation at this cellular stage can be positive or negative but the outcome will resonate throughout the individual’s entire life and ultimately the generations that follow.

Please follow this link if you want any further information on how mutations occur.
