A genetic sequence is the sequence of the DNA or RNA of an organisnm by amino acids which encode proteins and hold the information of the expression of the genome they are in.

The genetic sequence encodes according to the genetic code and if a mistake happens during that processmutations are probably going to occur on that genome. Mutations such asmissense mutation, nonsense mutation, insertion, deletion, substitution can happen causing many diseases and syndromes. Some of those diseases are cancer, sickle cell anemia and some syndromes are Down syndrome,Edward's syndrome.
