Many human diseases have a genetic component to them. There are over 6,000 genetic disorders, many of which are fatal or severely debilitating. A genetic disease is caused by a mutation in DNA and can be divided into 4 major groups: Single-gene mutation;  Multiple genes mutations; Chromosomal changes and mitochondrial mutations. The completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 has helped to identify genes associated with many genetic diseases.
