This app is a unique and invaluable source for information regarding diseases and conditions of a genetic origin. This collec- tion of nearly 400 entries provides in-depth coverage of disorders ranging from exceedingly rare to very well- known. In addition, several non-disorder entries have been included to facilitate understanding of common genetic concepts and practices such as Chromosomes, Genetic counseling, and Genetic testing. This encyclopedia avoids medical jargon and uses language that laypersons can understand, while still providing thorough coverage of each disorder medical professionals will find beneficial as well. This app fills a gap between basic consumer health resources, such as single-volume family medical guides, and highly technical professional materials. Each entry discussing a particular disorder follows a standardized format that provides information at a glance. The rubric used was: Definition Description Genetic profile Demographics Signs and symptoms Diagnosis Treatment and management Prognosis Resources Key terms
