Infectious disease can be passed from person to person. AIDS is both infectious and an auto-immune disease.

Tay-sachs disease differs from an infectious disease because it is a hereditary disease, so it can only be passed from parents to their offspring.

genetic diseases are associated with birth via the DNA chain (as is cystic fibrosis) ; infectious diseases are those types of pathologies like malaria, for instance, which is transported by a specific mosquito which implants the malaria germ into your blood stream. it is more complicated then that when some diseases are fundamentally genetic but are associated with many infectious traits.

A gene is just the DNA that stores genetic information, a genome is all the genetic material in an organism.

The genetic variation of a population is a measure of how much individuals in a population differ genetically.

False. Prions and viroids are the smallest infectious agents. Prions are infectious protein particles, and viroids are infectious strands of RNA. Viroids differ from viruses in that they are ONLY a strand of RNA. Viruses have a protein coat protecting the nucleic acid molecule and some even have a lipid layer over that.

A symptom is an indicator of a condition or disease. Symptoms differ depending on the condition or disease.

The genetic make up of the daughter cells formed by mitosis will be identical to the genetic make up of the parent cell.

well for one lymph capillaries depend on skeletal muscles to move and cardiovascular capillaries have there own smooth muscle. also lymph muscles carry lymph which cleans the body while cardiovascular capillaries provide nutrients and oxygen for the body

The amino acids of humans and apes differ by 1 percent

Viroids have no protein coat (capsid); they only have genetic material which is RNA.

it creates different genes that differ form the parent cells.

viruses are genetic elements that contain DNA or RNA as their genetic material,and have an extracellular form. Plasmids do not have an extracellular form. Plasmids only have DNA.

I'm sorry but there is no real prevention for Parkinson's disease. it is a progressive, neurological disease whose signs and symptoms differ in character and severity from person to person.

Because bacteria have only DNA as genetic material but viruses have RNA or DNA as genetic material. viruses are harmful but most of the bacteria are useful.

Species diversity is the amount of different species occupying the same area whatever it may be...genetic diversity is the how the genes in a species differ in that area

I'm afraid not, since there is no recorded variability among the severity of the symptoms in the patients who have this disease. The genetic theory lies behind the fact that its based on a partial chromosomal deletion, and the symptoms do not differ, no matter how much was deleted from the chromosome

They differ because in asexual reproduction offspring show much genetic variation .

Seed production is a form of sexual reproduction, with all the genetic variation that sexual reproduction brings with it, where as vegetative reproduction is asexual and does not bring about any genetic variation.

The genetic makeup of the cells that result from mitosis is not different from the parent cell's. The two daughter cells are genetically identical to the parent cell.

A hospital has more security considerations than a factory. Also, a hospital has to consider the possibility of the spread of infectious diseases.
