    A genetic disorder that is inherited as a recessive trait is sickle cell anemia.

    Explanation:

    Sickle cell anemia can be described as a disorder which is caused by a mutation in the hemoglobin beta gene which is found on chromosome number 11. The pattern of inheritance of sickle cell anemia is autosomal recessive which means that both the alleles of the gene shall be recessive for the trait to occur. A person with one recessive allele for the trait will not carry the disease but will be a carrier for the disease.
