Gene mutation can be caused by changes in the environment and at any stage of that person’s life. They could be hereditary, this happens when these mutations are inherited from a parent that will be passed to their offspring. For example, some of the inherited gene disorders are cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia and Tay-Sachs. Permanent changes can be rare but also common that sometimes it is considered a normal variation in DNA.
