Modes of Inheritance

Sex-Linked Inheritance: Y-linked inheritance (father to son)

Autosomal aneuploids:

In humans, autosomal aneuploidy often results in mental retardation because
do many genes contribute to brain function. Extra genetic material is apparently
less dangerous than missing material. (Sex chromosome aneuploidy is less severe
than autosomal aneuploidy.)
