I need a correction to these texts
For autosomal dominant conditions, the term “carrier” is often used in a less formal manner to denote people who have inherited the genetic predisposition conferred by the mutation.
However, if the mutation is autosomal recessive-that is, if the health effect of the mutation is caused only when two copies of the mutated gene are inherited-mutation carriers (healthy people carrying one copy of the altered gene) may be relatively common in the general population.
