Agent causing mutations.
A mutagen is an agent that causes a permanent heritable change (i.e., a mutation) into the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) of an organism.Found on http://www.chem.qmul.ac.uk/iupac/medchem/ix.html
In genetics, a mutagen is a physical or chemical agent that changes the genetic material, usually DNA, of an organism and thus increases the frequency of mutations above the natural background level. As many mutations cause cancer, mutagens are therefore also likely to be carcinogens. Not all mutations are caused by mutagens: so-called `spontaneo....Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutagen
