genetics is the study of heredity — the inherited characteristics that make each of us unique
Our bodies are made up of millions and millions of cells that act as the fundamental structure of all living organisms.
Deep within each cell is a ladder-shaped molecule known as DNA.
The specific order or sequence of DNA units is the basis for the genetic information unique to you.
Because a variant is a change to a gene, it alters the body's protein-making instructions and can impact critical processes within the body.
A genotype is a category of gene mutation that causes a specific condition or disorder.
