Introduction: Translocation Chromosome Disorders
Translocation Chromosome Disorders:
Translocations occur when a portion of one chromosome is misplaced
and attached to another chromosome.
Chromosome diseases are genetic diseases
where a large part of the genetic code has been disrupted.
Chromosomes are long sequences of DNA that contain hundreds or thousands of genes.
Every person has 2 copies of each of the 23 chromosomes,
called chromosomes 1..22 (or "autosomes") and the 23rd is the sex chromosome,
which is either X and Y. Men are XY and women are XX in the 23rd chromosome pair.
