That is to say we all have genetic mutations. Sweet.
Scientists have found that each human being has around 60 different mutations in their genes. And although you might lack the superpowers of a character like Wolverine, the results are startling.
Findings by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge and two other institutes in the U.S. and Canada revealed each one of us receives up to 60 mutations in our genome from our parents. It shows that human genomes (our genetic makeup carried on 23 pairs of chromosomes) are mutated in both sperm and egg cells, resulting in changes to our DNA seen in neither parent.
Apparently, my mutation is the ability to be a sarcastic bastard.
