For this assignment we would search the genetic disorder or diseases. We decided to choose Alzheimer. Based on our research, we will discussed about the definition or explanation, sign and symptoms, how the abnormalities happened?, about the medication / care / management and scientific history in the discovery of the genetic disorder of the Alzheimer disease.
