11. Cystic fibrosis is a serious inherited lung disorder that often causes death in victims during early childhood.

Because the gene for this disease is recessive, two apparently healthy adults, called carriers, can have a child

with the disease. We will denote the normal gene by N and the cystic fibrosis gene by c to indicate its recessive

nature.
