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.)

Dominant allele and recessive allele?

How do dominant alleles differ from recessive alleles?

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

What does a dominant alleles do to recessive allele?

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
