I am intersted in understanding the fundamental nature of chance in
mutation. What specifically causes mutation? If you know any good references,
please tell, everything I can find only talks about what the end result is
of the mutation (base change, inversion, etc).
Where does the chance arise from?
Is it possible for a single photon to induce a mutation? If so, this would
be a prime place to witness chance- for the actual photons absorption is
dictated only by the probability distribution of QM.
Where else is it directly evident that chance performs evolution?
