Re: Re-Taq(412): Is transposition random or non-random?
You still cannot show any non-random genetic mutation.

This got me wondering, are retro-viral insertions considered to be mutations? And are their insertion points random?

Also, are genetic modifications using tools like CRISPR considered mutations, and are they random or specific as far insertion point?

I know this is completely unrelated to the mutations you are talking to Wang about, but I just wondered what your thoughts are?
