Hi Matt,
 
X-chromosome is easy to analyze since females have XX and males have XY.
 
Three disorders of X-chromosome are:
 
Muscular Dystrophy: Muscle disorder, recessive
 
Hemophilia A and B: Blood disorder, recessive
 
Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS: brain disorder, some forms are recessive.
 
Hope this helps.
