Telephone As Mutating Dna

a: Dna replication ~
b: telephone-game

What: "dna replication is like that game "telephone." one person starts by reciting a sentence to another person #2, in a whisper so no one else can hear. person #2 repeats the sentence to person #3, #3 to #4, and so on. when the final person is told the sentence, he/she says it out loud in order to compare with the original. (of course, all intermediate people get to hear what their sentence turned into.)" The concept alluded to here is mutation. Replication errors can occur and lead to mutations the way a sentence mutates during a game of telephone.
