Dr. Fernández: Hope you are enjoying the meeting. Great poster. Not being a geneticist, I did not realize that mosaicism occurred to such a great extent. Now that I know, there are a couple of questions. First, what are the molecular mechanisms involved in it? Does mosaicism occur but at much lower frequency even when a normal set of chromosomes is present? Third, in the Turner's Syndrome patients, can this be inherited further? If so, what are the implications of this as a mechanism for evolution?
