The difference . \nA genetic disorder is something an individual is born with, and results from a problem within their genetic material. This means they have inherited the disease or disorder from their Mother or Father. You cannot inherit an infectious disease, you acquire it during your lifetim…e from a germ, such as a virus or a bacterium. You can also recover from an infectious disease, whereas you will always suffer from a genetic disorder if you inherit one. (MORE)
A combination of genetic and environmental factors play a role in the development of schizophrenia.   People with a family history of schizophrenia who suffer a transient psychosis have a 20-40% chance of being diagnosed one year later.  Estimates of heritability vary because …of the difficulty in separating the effects of genetics and the environment.  The greatest risk for developing schizophrenia is having a first-degree relative with the disease (risk is 6.5%); more than 40% of monozygotic twins of those with schizophrenia are also affected.  It is likely that many genes are involved, each of small effect and unknown transmission and expression.  Many possible candidates have been proposed, including specific copy number variations , NOTCH4 , and histone protein loci.  A number of genome-wide associations such as zinc finger protein 804A have also been linked.  There appears to be significant overlap in the genetics of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder .  (MORE)

Marfan's syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissues. What is inherited is a defect in the chromosome 15q21, that codes the FBN1 gene. This gene is necessary for proper synthesis if a type of connective tissue called fibrillin. Patients have skeletal abnormalities, eye changes, …cardiovascular problems, and a marked tendency to bruise. Tay-Sachs disease is a lysosomal storage disorder, characterised by ganglioside accumulation. This is due to an enzyme deficiency in the lysosome that cannot digest the gangliosides and hence leads to progressive accumulation. (MORE)

There must be random mating. The population must be very large.There can be no movement into or out of the population. There can'tbe an mutation. There is no natural selection.
Guppies are not very hard to please. The gravid female needs a tank to herself allowing 1 gallon of water per 1 inch of fish. A water temp around 75F and a pH of around 6.8 to 7.2 and a GH of around 150 to 200. A few plants growing in a gravel substrate to provide cover for the young immediately aft…er birth are a good idea. After the female has finished dropping her youngsters she should be removed otherwise she will eat her young. (MORE)

Can a person with a genetic disorder that has been corrected pass the corrected condition to their children?
No, because this genetic disorder occurs because the parents are heterozygous, they don't show any symptoms. However, if each pqarent passes the recessive allele to the child, the child inherits both recessive alleles and will have a recssive genetic disorder, so it doesnt matter if you have a gene …transfer because, the new gene is not yours, so you children may have it. xoxo (MORE)
Yes and no. see if your grand parents had it, there could be a chance that you might develope alzheimer's disease, but you might also develope alzheimer's disease just from old age.

Congenital disorders are present at or shortly after birth and are typically present throughout life until death. Some congenital abnormalities (such as a heart defect) are treatable or repaired in infancy or young childhood. Acquired disorders develop during a person's lifetime, anytime from birth… to old age. Almost every adult by old age has at least one acquired disorder and most adults develop more than one disorder. (MORE)

Why do genetic counselors need information about many generations of a family in order to draw conclusions about a hereditary condition?
Some conditions are recessive while others are dominant. In addition, a condition might be X-linked or chromosomal, environmental (due to a teratogen) or sporadic. A comprehensive evaluation of the entire family history (3 or 4 generations) is highly useful in differentiating between these different… disease causes. Some conditions present very similarly, but can be inherited in different ways and through the family history, a trained genetic counselor can help distinguish between different types of inheritance and may help narrow down options for diagnostic testing.
