The list of types of genetic mutations consists of the followings: frameshift mutations, insertion mutations, deletion mutations and substitution mutations.

The genetic disease caused by substitution mutation is called sickle cell anemia and the Tay Sachs neurodegenerative disease is caused by insertion mutation.

The frameshift mutation is considered to be the cause of Crohn's disease.

The deletion mutation happens when a section of DNA is deleted, causing a series of genetic diseases like hereditary neuropathy, Smith Magenis and William Beuren syndromes, which are developmental disorders.
