Abstract: This genetic material is constantly changing. Based on current estimates of the rate of human mutations and the number of genetic loci coding for proteins, the total number of mutations expected per germ cell is between 5 and 10.1 Most of these mutations are clinically neutral-that is they cause no overt disease - but their continuing presence emphasizes the great potential of such mutational events in the etiology of the numerous inherited metabolic or chromosomal disorders known or yet to be discovered.
