While mRNA strands are being created, a sequence is sometimes miscopied. What is the best possible outcome for the cell should this take place?

    The mRNA is to be translated into proteins, the best possible outcome is that the codon that was miss copied is translated into the same protein that it would be translated in if it hadn't been miss copied

    I'd say that the best possible outcome would be some evolutionary advantage, and that the miscopying can be repeatable. Petros http://petros-evdokas.cyprus-org.net/another-sort-of-introduction.html
