Question: Is cooley's anemia a single celled or chromosomal abnomality?

Answer: The wording of your question is a bit confusing. Cooley's Anemia does not result from a chromosomal abnormality. The most obvious example of a condition resulting from a chromosomal abnormality would Down Syndrome. I think you are incorrectly using the phrase "single celled". Cooley's Anemia is the result of a mutation in a single gene, the HBB gene. The HBB, or hemoglobin beta gene, is located on chromosome 11.
