Mutagenesis is the process of generating a genetic mutation. This may occur spontaneously or be induced by mutagens. Researchers also use a number of techniques to create mutations, including transposon mutagenesis to generate random gene knockouts, and site-directed mutagenesis, which utilises the polymerase chain reaction to introduce specific mutations.
