Our genetic information is stored in 23 pairs of chromosomes that vary widely in size and shape. Chromosome 1 is the largest and is over three times bigger than chromosome The 23rd pair of chromosomes are two special chromosomes, X and Y, that determine our sex. Females have a pair of X chromosomes (46, XX), whereas males have one X and one Y chromosomes (46, XY).

    The gene map of the extended major histocompatibility complex (xMHC) is shown from telomere (left) to centromere (right) on the short arm of chromosome 6 I (eFig. ).The five colour-coded sub-regions making up the xMHC span about Mb and are defined as: the extended class I sub-region (green block; HIST1H2AA to MOG; Mb), the classical class I sub-region (yellow block; C6orf40 to MICB.   Cook recreates the same magic with the same subject in Chromosome 6. The story is develops in two places In one place, Dr. Kevin Marshall, a molecular biologist and researcher, discovers a way to reduce the rejection rate to zero through genetic engineering. It is a process of extracting a chromosome from a human body and transferring it in 5/5.

Like most other chromosome disorders, this increases the risk of birth defects, developmental delay and learning difficulties.
