|MadSci Network: Genetics|
Hi Chris, The short answer is that an adopted child can be listed, however it has to be noted. For genetic disorders it is the same. Of course as you know then that inherited disorders in your family blood line does not extend to adopted individuals. Often an adopted individual does not know his or her family history which can make things a little difficult sometimes. Here is a website, http://www.kumc.edu/gec/ , with a huge amount of information regarding genetics, maybe even more than you bargained for. Hope this helps, Mark Sullivan
