Genetic disease, conceptual computer artwork. Five chromosomes each with one of their genes highlighted (red). Chromosomes, which consist of two identical chromatids joined at a centromere, are composed of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) coiled around proteins. DNA contains sections, called genes, that encode the body's genetic information, determining each cell's structure, function and behaviour. Some genes can also increase a person's likelihood of developing a disease. Many disease can have genetic causes, including cancer, Alzheimer's disease and diabetes.
