Yes to Merging[edit]

I belive that it should merge under genetic variation as there is no point in having the two pages separte as thay relate to the same topic and would help and inform readers more on the topic if merged. 05:17, 2 June 2007 (UTC)


Perhaps a small summary of the article mutation would be appropriate, as mutation is after all the origin of all genetic variation and diversity. Richard001 02:42, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Of coarse it might prove to be a distraction to scholars who are studying genetic variation only. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:50, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Revived Genetic Variation article[edit]

Copied Genetic Variation article from [1] in accordance with their Creative Commons license [2]. --Saul Greenberg (talk) 01:06, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Merge again?[edit]

I think this article should be merged back with genetic diversity, I don't see any reason for two articles here. Joannamasel (talk) 19:52, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

No, I don't think a merge would be an improvement. --Crystal labyrinth (talk) 17:01, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I concur on not merging. Genetic diversity is in the realm of population genetics, whereas genetic variation has more of a molecular genetics focus. This article needs some work, btw. Besides in-line refs, there is more depth that could be added about different types genetic variations, their mechanism, prevalence, biological impact, etc. -- SteveChervitzTrutane (talk) 05:48, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
