Because the [alpha]- and [beta]-globin gene clusters are physically unlinked and segregate independently, [beta]-thalassemia carriers who also carry triplicated or quadruplicated [alpha]-globin genes have a 25% risk of having a similarly affected offspring, although their partners may be entirely normal.
