Framing error is the following:

  • Generally, a framing error is the result of reading a string of symbols which are grouped in blocks starting at the wrong point.
  • In communication, a framing error is the result of reading a string of symbols which are grouped in blocks starting at the wrong point. The symbols are bits and the blocks are bytes, ten bits in asynchronous transmission and eight in synchronous. A framing error in an asynchronous stream usually recovers quickly, but a framing error in a synchronous stream produces gibberish to the end of the packet. Framing errors can be detected with parity bits.
  • In genetics, a framing error (also called a frameshift or a frameshift mutation) is a mutation that inserts or deletes a single nucleotide from a DNA sequence. Due to the triplet nature of gene expression, the insertion/deletion can disrupt the grouping of the codons, resulting in a completely different translation from the original.

A frameshift mutation (also called a frameshift or a framing error) is a genetic mutation that inserts or deletes a number of nucleotides that is not evenly divisible by three from a DNA sequence.
Frameshift mutations frequently result in severe genetic diseases.
A frameshift mutation is responsible for the disabling of the CCR5 HIV receptor and some types of familial hypercholesterolemia (Lewis, 2005, p.
