Medical Down syndrome-role of mother

  1. Feb 20, 2017 #1
    Why does increase in age of the mother increases the chance of having an offspring with Down Syndrome?

    I want to know the molecular basis of this observation. I'll be grateful if somebody could recommend an authentic source in this regard.
