Genetic Diseases

  • Genetic diseases

    A genetic disorder is a disease caused in whole or in part by a change in the DNA sequence away from the normal healthy sequence. 

    Genetic disorders can be caused by a mutation in one gene (monogenic disorder), by mutations in multiple genes (multifactorial inheritance disorder), by a combination of gene mutations and environmental factors, or by damage to chromosomes (changes in the number or structure of entire chromosomes, the structures that carry genes).
