A genetic disorder is a disease caused by a different form of a gene called a variation, or an alteration of a gene called a mutation. Many diseases have a genetic aspect. Some, including many cancers, are caused by a mutation in a gene or group of genes in a person's cells. These mutations can occur randomly or because of an environmental exposure such as cigarette smoke.
Other genetic disorders are inherited. A mutated gene is passed down through a family and each generation of children can inherit the gene that causes the disease. Still other genetic disorders are due to problems with the number of packages of genes called chromosomes. In Down syndrome, for example, there is an extra copy of chromosome 21.
This cool app discusses the most important topics in genetic disorders and is ideal for all medical professionals, medical residents and interns, nurses, medical students, and of course curious lay people who just want to learn more about genetic disorders.

Thank You so much for developing this precious app!
I'am a pre-med student, and I downloaded this app just to check it out thinking it was going to be an app for kids, but this app explains everything. Thank you so much 👌🏼
Solid app, but has a selective range of conditions to choose from. Plus the information available is very broad, reminiscent to that of a general Internet search.
Plus there are full screen adds that play every so often....
Not much detail.
The title got me interested, however not much detail is given for individual syndromes.
More disappointing was that some of the text seemed to have come straight (i.e. copy/paste?) from the NIH website, so you are better off going to the source if you want to learn more about genetic diseases.
