Compare a dominant allele with a recessive alllele?
YES ALWAYS!!! Even if you have for example, Aa (A being the dominant allele and a being the recessive allele) that trait will always be dominant!
Dominant alleles only reproduce organisms called DUBS. Recessive alleles reproduce organisms called STENS.
A dominant allele is an allele where its phenotype will always be represented when the allele for that gene is present. A recessive allele can be masked by a dominant allele w…hen a dominant and recessive allele are present for the same gene. A recessive allele will only present itself when two recessive alleles for a trait are present.
An example of dominant allele is T or I..... an example of a recessive allele is i or t -- Dominant alleles are traits that show on the physical form of the organism. …Recessive alleles are traits still there in the organism, but they will not show unless there is no dominant alleles.
In genetics, each organism will typically have 2 alleles for each trait. For a trait such as hair color, you might have an allele for red hair from your dad and an allele for …brown hair from your mom. The trait for brown hair happens to be dominant to the trait for red hair so you would show the allele for brown hair. (In other words, you would have brown hair.)
Yes, recessive allele is masked by the dominant allele.
You need two recessive alleles to get their trait, but only one dominant allele to get that trait. A dominant allele basically overrides a recessive one if they are together, …but the recessive gene can show up in offspring.
Alleles are different types of a gene. Each gene controls a characteristic and they is usually a recessive allele and a dominant one. The main similarity is that they both con…trol a certain characteristic!

Dominate them. Recessive alleles do not show in your phenotype unless you have two of the same recessive allele. But if you inherit one dominant and one recessive, it is the d…ominant that always shows in your phenotype.
Alleles are neither entirely recessive nor entirely dominate. An allele is any one of a number of alternative forms of the same gene on a chromosome. For example: say a flow…er only blooms either red or white flowers. There is a different allele for each color-- a red allele and a white allele. Now, one color may be dominate over the other recessive gene. For example, if the red color was dominate and the white color was recessive, then those certain alleles would be dominate and recessive, respectively. But alleles in general cannot be either recessive or dominate. It depends on the gene and it depends on the trait.
An allele that can express itself (produce its phenotype) even in the presence of the other allele is said to be dominant to the other allele. The allele that cannot express …itself when its dominant allele is present is called the recessive allele. For example, gene T governs height in pea plants. The "T" allele produced tall plants, while the "t" allele produces dwarf plants. Plants having genotypes TT and tt would no doubt be tall and dwarf respectively. However, plants with genotype Tt (heterozygous) will not be intermediate height, they will be tall. Here, the effect of the T allele is dominating the effect of the t allele. Hence T is dominant and t is recessive
It is called CODOMINANCE if the alleles each express when the phenotype is heterozygous. Let's look at the following situation. There are snapdragon flowers that are homozygou…s (having 2 of the same allele) for red. Let's call them R. There are also snapdragon flowers that are homozygous for white. Let's call them r. If you take one of the RR flowers and breed it with a rr flower, you will get Rr. If one of the alleles is dominant, then the flower will be the color of the dominant allele. If R (red) is the dominant allele, then all of the offspring will be red; if r (white) is the dominant allele, then they will be white. However, if they are codominant, then if the genotype is heterozygous (Rr), then the alleles will both express- in this case, the offspring would be pink. Hope I helped!
Yes, they are different. A recessive allele gets its name because when in the presence of a dominant allele, it will "recede" and not show, hence the name for the dominant all…ele.
In _____, one allele is dominant to a recessive allele.
