a frameshift mutation is a genetic mutation in which a number of nucleotides not divisible by three are either inserted into or deleted from a nucleic acid sequence



the addition or deletion of one or more nucleotides in a strand of DNA, which shifts the codon triplets of the genetic code of messenger RNA, resulting in a mutation.
