    Introduction: Mutagenesis is proved to analysis the organism changes and its effect on characteristics and products. The Ames test can identify mutagens that work specifically to modify DNA. In people, in any case, numerous synthetic concoctions are promutagens, specialists that must be actuated to end up evident mutagens. Initiation, including a synthetic alteration, frequently happens in the liver as a result of ordinary liver movement on bizarre substances. Materials and Methods: In this research, Ames test is for determining chemical nature having properties to cause mutation. The organism is highly sensitive to histidine and many chemicals which can explore different pesticides. Results and Discussion: It is a simple, reasonable, and helpful starting screen for mutagens. The main chemicals used in the pesticides are quinalphos and dimethoate, respectively. Conclusion: From research work, I concluded that these two are strong mutagens. They have high carcinogenic activity.
