      • The amino acids will be different
      • The new protein will  not function properly
    • Deletion
      • ACT/TAG/GCA--ACT/AGG/CA_
      • All the codes after the deletion will be wrong
    • Substitution
      • ACT/TAG/GCA--AGT/TAG/GCA
      • Only one triplet code is affected
      • The end protein will wok the same or slightly differently
