Are genetic defects associated with abnormalities of the autosomes, sex chromosomes, or both? Why?

  • biology -

    Genetic effects can be related to abnormalities on any chromosome. The type of abnormality will be determined by which genes (on which chromosomes) — and how many of them — are modified.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
