A question re Wayward Pines for biologist/geneticists (contains spoilers)

This question bothered me when I read the book, and the tv series hasn't shed any light on it either. What would cause humans to mutate so much in such a short space of time (2000 years)? And why would a small, apparently random, selection of humans be somehow resistant to this rapid mutation in the future? Surely by the time the mad professor (I can't remember his name atm) noticed there was something causing mutations it would have been too late to be taking people randomly, but there's no suggestion that they checked out their DNA before freezing them.

I'm quite impressed with the way they induct the children in the TV series though, that was very much glossed over in the book. When I was reading I was hoping there would be more detail about what exactly they told the children and how they stopped them from telling the adults.
