Genetic Diseases

In science we learned about different genetic diseases by creating a brochure to teach other people about them. Some of us researched about Colorblindness, Alzheimer's, Cleft Lip/Palate, Albinism, Dwarfism, Down Syndrome and many more. All of these diseases are inherited, some by extra or missing chromosomes. In our brochures we had to include the inhertitance of the disease, how it affects people, and cure that can be applied to patients. For example:


Colorblindness: Inheritance- an X-linked recessive trait
Cause- a misssing or damaged cone in the eye
Cure- no known cure


We also had to include at least three pictures in our brochures. Some of these pictures include:
