Genetic: All types of genetic diseases
Introduction: Genes are small sequences of DNA. Genetic diseases can affect a single gene or an entire chromosome (a DNA sequence containing thousands of genes). Single gene disorders are an error in a single gene, leading to a specific genetic disease, depending on what gene got affected. This is the type of disease that people usually mean when they say "genetic disease". For entire chromosome disorders, see chromosome disorders. Diseases that have some risk factor but are not genetic are often called polygenic diseases.
