Every person has two copies of a given gene, one inherited from each parent. When both parental alleles match the risk allele in the database then the condition is called "Recessive". That means that both copies of the same gene have a mutation. (TRUE/TRUE).
A carrier is a person who has only one gene with a mjutation and one gene that is unaffected. (TRUE/FALSE). Carriers are usually eymptoms-free and do not know that they carry the mutation. But they can pass it to their offspring.
Since many disease have genetic origin, the gene name is reported by DNA to Z.
For example DMD is the gene name for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy- a progressive degenration of skeletal muscles.
The links to medical references is reported for each SNP. The NCBI library is the one most often used. Understanding the medical terms in not easy so it is always recommended to consult your family doctor if you have any concerns.
