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 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. Re…cessive alleles are traits still there in the organism, but they will not show unless there is no dominant alleles.
Yes, recessive allele is masked by the dominant allele.
No. Dominant alleles always hide recessive. Think of it this way, dominant as in, the leader. That helps me remember that they take over. :) good luck !
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.
its different because adominant allele is in charge

Dominant alleles are the ones that show up in the phenotype. Recessive alleles do not unless both alleles are recessive, but can be passed on. For example: Tt , T=tall and t…=short. Tall is dominant and short is recessive. You are tall and can pass on the short gene. Or, you can use black hair being dominant over red. Or, brown eyes being dominant over blue. Dominant can be seen on you and recessive can't.
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.
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
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.
Recessive alleles are defective in some way, so they cannot express there trait normally. Dominant alleles are normal and so they expresses better.
In _____, one allele is dominant to a recessive allele.
