Summary Introduction

To describe: The type of information obtained from a DNA sequence by a researcher studying the disease-causing gene.

Introduction: A DNA constitutes the genetic information of an organism. The morphological makeup of an individual is depicted by the information contained by the genetic material. The DNA is responsible for the transfer of information from one generation to another.

Explanation of Solution

The sequence of DNA can provide various important facts related to the disease-causing genes. In a gene, disease causing sequence of the nucleotides can be compared to the non-mutated sequence of nucleotides that do not cause disease. From the comparison, a researcher can find out the exact kind of mutation in the nucleotide sequences which are responsible for the cause of disease...
