Genesis is a theme framework for advanced WordPress users and child themes are specifically designed to work with it.  A Genesis Child Theme will not work without the Genesis parent theme.

As far as capabilities, it's not tremendously different from a normal theme.  The major differences are that Genesis is optimized in ways most themes are not...it comes with its own SEO custom fields, is faster than most normal themes, closes several security holes, and has an extensive library of custom hooks, functions, and shortcodes that make life easier for an advanced user.  For a beginner, it would actually be more difficult to use than a standard WordPress theme.
