You are a genetic counselor working with parents who are planning their families.
Each of these families is concerned about passing a different inherited disorder to their potential children. You will read through each case study and determine the possibility that a child will inherit a specific condition from their parents. You will need to research the common inheritance pattern of the condition, create a Punnet square, and determine the possibility that a specific offspring will inherit the condition.
Prepare a report detailing your findings for each couple. Be sure to include the following:
A description of the condition and the inheritance pattern
A Punnet square
An evaluation of the inheritance risk for the couple’s children
This assignment should be in current APA Style with both a title page and a reference list that includes all of the sources used for these case studies.
