How to use "Genetic abnormality" in context?
A genetic abnormality is a defect in a person's genetic makeup. These defects can be inherited, meaning that they are passed down to offspring from the person who has them. Some genetic abnormalities are due to mutations, which are alterations in the genetic code. These alterations can cause problems with how the body produces proteins, leading to conditions such as Down syndrome. Genetic abnormalities can also be due to chromosomal abnormalities, which are alterations in the number, structure, or placement of chromosomes in cells.
