clone

Progeny produced by asexual reproduction from an organism (branch or rice). In humans, identical twins form a natural clone. In plants this is called vegetative propagation when new plants are regenerated from certain tissue parts of a starting plant. Initially, genetically identical living beings with heterogeneous properties emerge that represent 100% identical copies (duplicates) of the initial type. By spontaneously arising and accumulating during the life phase mutations These copies are slowly but steadily deviated from the original vine in small steps. But only starting from a bigger one morphological and genetic modification scope one can speak of mutants. In the so-called somatic chimeric the mutations appear tissue-specific, that is, the outer epidermal cells may have one or more mutations, but these have not occurred in the inner cell layers or vice versa.
