Genetic Disorders

Genes are the building blocks of heredity. They are passed from parent to child. They hold DNA, the instructions for making proteins. Proteins do most of the work in cells. They move molecules from one place to another, build structures, break down toxins, and do many other maintenance jobs. There are three types of genetic disorders: Single-gene disorders: where a mutation affects one gene. Sickle cell anemia is an example. Chromosomal disorders: where chromosomes are missing or changed. Chromosomes are the structures that hold our genes. Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder. Complex disorders: where there are mutations in two or more genes. Often your lifestyle and environment also play a role. Colon cancer is an example.​
