      I’m doing a project on a genetic disorder, what do you think are some interesting genetic disorders? I’m speaking form a molecular perspective, not phenotypic.

      I’ve always found fragile-X syndrome to be kinda cool.

      Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an interesting ciliopathy.

      Another intriguing syndrome is Hutchinson-Gilford progeria.
