Genetic Disorder may be caused as result of new mutation or changes that occur in DNA. It is also a hereditary diseases  that is caused from parents gene. Mostly it caused due to the abnormalities in the genome. Genetic disorders are classified into different types depending up on single gene or multiple genes . Around 4000 diseases are categorized as single gene defect. Some of the multifactorial  disorders include heart diseases and diabetes. Some of the common diseases are asthma, Diabetes, Hypertension and Obesity.

Thalassemia is characterized as an abnormal hemoglobin producing condition. It is a type of inherited blood disorders. Symptoms are mild to severe anemia due to low red blood cells count. Anemia can make one feel tired and have pale skin. Bone problems, an enlarged spleen, yellowish skin, dark urine, and among children slow growth are other related symptoms of Thalassemia. There are two main types in thalassemia, alpha thalassemia and beta thalassemia. Diagnosis is done by blood tests including a complete blood count, special haemoglobin tests, and genetic tests. Diagnosis can also be done before birth by prenatal testing.

Sickle-cell disease (SCD) is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from an individual’s parents. Amongst all, the most common type is known as sickle-cell anaemia (SCA). An abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin (haemoglobin S) found in red blood cells is seen in SCD. This mainly leads to a rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickel cell disease Problems typically begin around 5 to 6 months of age. Sickle-cell disease caused due to when inheritance two abnormal copies of the haemoglobin gene, one from each parent. This gene present in chromosome 11. Various subtypes exist, depending on the exact mutation in each haemoglobin gene. An attack can get started by temperature changes, stress, dehydration, and high altitude

Immunogenetics is under a division of medical genetics that exploits the relationship between the genetics and immune system. Type 1 diabetes is an Autoimmune disease, it has complex genetic traits which result due to defects in the immune system. New target genes for therapeutic approaches are identified by Identification of genes defining the immune defects. Alternatively, by making use of genetic variation the immunological pathway leading to disease is defined. It highlights the emerging technical and various conceptual breakthroughs that pitch for mechanisms of anti-donor responses.

Use of Stem cells for the treatment and prevention of diseased condition is categorized under stem cell therapy. Bone marrow transplant is found to be most widely used among various stem-cell therapies. Some stem cell therapies were acquired by using umbilical cord blood. Stem-cell therapy has turned into a controversial trailing to the developments where scientists are able to isolate and culture embryonic stem cells, to create stem cells using somatic cell nuclear transfer and their use of techniques to create induced pluripotent stem cells. These controversies often comprehend abortion politics and to human cloning. Stem cell therapy has been exploited for treatments of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

A gene mutation happens due to permanent alteration in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene, in a way that the sequence differs from what is found in most of the normal individual. Mutations range in size; they can affect anywhere from a single DNA base pair to a large segment of a chromosome, one including multiple genes. It can be classified in two major ways that is hereditary mutations and acquired mutation.
