diesease :Sickle Cell Disease
To prepare yourself to talk to this family, demonstrate an understanding of the inheritance pattern for this condition by providing either a. or b. below (choose one)
a.) preparing a pedigree chart showing three generations’ risk for this disease using standard symbols and terminology. Start with current family member who is affected (proband) and provide genetic inheritance/risk for that person’s parents, the proband and three siblings, and four
potential children of each person in the proband’s generation (four potential children provide the opportunity to identify all possibilities for genetic inheritance for children of the proband’s
siblings). A helpful tool may be found at https://pedigree.progenygenetics.com (Links to an external site.)/
b.) developing a Punnett square to show how the disease is inherited, based on its’ single-gene recessive or dominant and sex-linked or autosomal characteristics. If the disease is recessive, both parents in the square will have the recessive gene. Explain the genotypic inheritance shown in the square.
