Unit 9 bio | Biology homework help

First,  think about your individual health and health risks, by considering what genetic diseases or problems are prevalent in your family.  Do you  have a predisposition to breast cancer, diabetes, hypertension or any other disease? You may consider your own health risks or those of other individuals such as a family member or friend. Then, in a paper of 750–1,000 words, address the following:

Part I: Evaluating Risk for Disease

  • What genetic diseases or problems did you identify to be potential issues?
  • Choose one of these diseases and provide an introduction of the disease, including the reason why this would be considered to be a genetic/inherited disease?
  •  Discuss the major signs/symptoms of the disorder. Research the mode of inheritance for your chosen disease and provide a thorough discussion of the mode of inheritance. If you are not able to find a specific mode of inheritance, provide a hypothesis for the mode of inheritance. Explain your reasoning thoroughly.
  • What information would help an individual who has been recently diagnosed with the disease?
  • What would you say to a family member who is also at risk for developing the disease? What should they know about passing this disease trait to their children?
