  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "genetic disorder" to get these possible sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_disorder
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_genetic_disorders
    http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/units/disorders/whataregd/
    (Broken Link Removed)
    http://www.ygyh.org/

    Take your pick.

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
