Mutation

De Vries was an experimental biologist specializing in the study of evening primroses. Darwin, in his theory of pangenesis, claimed that each body part produced gemmules that carried its own inheritable characteristics. De Vries also believed that traits are inherited in particles, which he called pangenes (which Wilhelm Johannsen later called genes).
