Aneuploidy is a condition in which the human cell has more than the normal 46 chromosomes- 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes along with 1 pair of sex chromosomes. Some examples of aneuploidy you may be familiar with includes Down’s Syndrome, but there are many other conditions associated with aneuploidy that you may not have heard of. Much of the reason for this is because of the variety in the levels of impact that aneuploidy can have on the manifestation of disease.
For this week’s forum review and select two genetic disorders that exhibit aneuploidy and compare and contrast them. Address the following concepts in your initial post:
Avoid constructing your forum as a list with answers but you can organize your information into a table with a comprehensive comparison between the two examples of aneuploidy. You can also summarize in paragraph form, summarizing each and doing a comparison of their similarities and differences. Draw from your text and additional resources to complete your post and include in-text citations and a bibliography to support your findings.
