INTRODUCTION
Down syndrome refers to the condition person has an extra chromosome. They are the
genes within human body. It happens during pregnancy and after birth. This includes the
structure and function of genes along with chromosomes and human genome. There is discussion
about genetic and phenotypic consequences of genetic and mutation variation. This includes the
inheritance and mutations along with symptoms. It also includes the genotypic and phenotypic
characteristics with psychological implications of disorder. There is also discussion about the
preventive methods (Langkamp, (2020)).
MAIN BODY
Information about the disorder/ introduction about the disorder
Down syndrome is known as genetic disorder which caused when there is abnormal cell
division that results in the partial or full copy of chromosome 21. These genetic changes caused
for the developmental changes along with physical features of Down syndrome. This can cause
intellectual disability within individual that can lead to create the impact within physical and
mental development of that individual or child. There are 95% of risk chances which are
effective and caused due to trisomy 21. This is the one in which individual is with three copies of
chromosome 21 rather than two copies. This causes due to abnormal cell division and abnormal
development of egg cell or sperm cell. Babies born with down syndrome can cause changes in
the brain and body development which can further lead to physical and mental challenges to the
individual with growing up. This can cause various difficulties with that individual that may
impact the quality of life along with performing various function that can lead to create high
impact on the living standard (Nerfeldt & et. al., (2020)). It can be observed that there is low of
