Genetics & Health Symposium: Down Syndrome

Our last project before our semester final was to pick a disease or disorder that interests you, and find out ALL you can about it with the caveat that you must be able to discern where the exact gene that causes the mutation is located.  My partner Michelle and I decided to choose Down Syndrome because this syndrome is huge, affecting many people in America. However, Down Syndrome is not a single gene…Down Syndrome is the presence of a whole extra chromosome! To find out more, check out our voice thread and feel free to leave feedback!
