A carrier, as associated to genetics, is a person who brings and can pass on to its offspring a genomic version associated with a disease that is acquired in an autosomal recessive or sex-linked fashion, and who does disappoint symptoms of that disease. The carrier has acquired the variant allele from one parent and a normal allele from the other parent. The key to recognizing carrier in the genetic sense is that, despite the fact that all of us have two duplicates of each genetics, for some genes you can have only one functioning copy and basically have no major medical problems. The obstacle arises when you have a child with another person who is a carrier for the same autosomal recessive disorder, and the child inherits both nonworking duplicates from each parent.
