Genes
• A treatment for diseases which
involves actually changing the
genes that causes the genetic
disorder.
• An alternate form of the same
gene for a given trait.
• Linked to any chromosome
other than the sex
chromosomes.
• A sex-linked recessive trait in
which a defect in the cones of
the eyes causes an inability to
see certain colors.
• When two different alleles for
the same trait combine, but
neither allele “wins” expression
over the other. The
heterozygous condition shows a
phenotype in between the two
homozygous phenotypes.
• This disorder is a sex-linked
recessive disorder in which the
blood does not have a protein
that allows it to clot.
• The scientific study of heredity.
• A chart that shows how a trait
and the genes that control it are
inherited within a family.
• A gene located on a sex
chromosome.
• The use of living organisms and
technology to make products
such as medicines or to benefit
humans.
• Using biotechnology to solve
crimes.
• This disorder is usually adultonset and is caused by a
deterioration of nerve cells.
This disorder is autosomal
dominant.
• The form of a trait that is
typically masked by the
dominant allele.
• A disease which causes mental
retardation because the body
can not metabolize the amino
acid phenylalanine. This
disorder is autosomal recessive.
• In humans, this trait is an
example of a codominant trait
with multiple alleles.
• This disease is a relatively
common birth defect cause by
the presence of an extra
chromosome number 21. This
disorder causes mental
retardation.
• A disorder in which the red
blood cells have an abnormal
shape. This disorder is
autosomal recessive.
• The expressed form of a trait
that usually masks the
recessive allele.
• A disorder that is due to having
an extra X chromosome
resulting in XXY.
• Provides people who want to
have children, information about
the probabilities of passing
genetic disorders on to their
offspring.
• An individual who carries a
recessive trait that is not
expressed.
• A disorder in which the person’s
cells have difficulty moving
water and salts. This results in
mucus to become dry, thick,
and sticky causing difficulties in
breathing. This disease is
autosomal recessive.
• The unit of hereditary
information that controls traits;
located on a chromosome.
• This disorder is caused by the
inability to process a specific
fat. As this fat builds up in the
brain, it causes severe brain
damage and eventually death.
This disorder is autosomal
recessive.
