No, genes are not responsible for AIDS. the retro virus HIV or human immuno deficiency virus has a pair of 'RNA' (ribose nuclic acid) strands which, when the virus get attached to the 'T helper cells' (the first line of defence), enter in the cell, and get attached to the DNA of the cell & make the DNA function according to the will of the Virus, contradicting to the cells own function. the cell then insted of making its own copies, starts making the copies of the Virus. That is, it starts RNA replication insted of DNA replication. Even though human Genes contain DNA, it is not responsible for AIDS & the RNA which is the 'gene' of the Virus is responsible for it.
