How to use "Monogenic disease" in context?
A monogenic disease is a disease that is caused by a single gene. Monogenic diseases are very rare, and there is usually only one example of a monogenic disease in the world. Monogenic diseases are caused by mutations in the gene that is responsible for the disease. This can happen when the gene is copied incorrectly during the process of giving birth, or when the gene is inherited from a parent who has the disease.
There are a few monogenic diseases, and each one is unique. Some of the most common monogenic diseases are Alzheimer's disease, cystic fibrosis, and total lack of function of the adrenal glands.
