Is Hand Clasping a dominant or recessive trait?
If you clasp your hand with your left thumb over your right, this is a dominant (more common) way of doing so. People who clasp their hands with their right thumb on top have the recessive genes. Left hand on top- Ll or LL right hand on top- ll

Dominant traits- is a strong trait Recessive traits- is a weak trait
Well there are some genetic traits controlled by a couple of alleles (hand calsping, tongue rolling, ear lobe attachment, etc.). and there are other controlled by many alleles… (as hair color, eye color, skin color, height, etc.). Hand clasping is one trait that, so far as I know, some people believe it is controlled by just one pair of allels other people think it is controlled by many of them. I prefer to believe hand clasping just has 2 alleles. Considering this, we can say that one of this 2 alleles is Dominant and another recessive, as usually, however there are some cases when both alleles are dominant. -What do I mean by dominant and recessive? Well, this means that if both are in the same locus for that genetic trait (or gene, it is the same) the dominant will be the one that will expressed in the person carrying these alleles for this gene (or genetic trait, it is the same =P). So in the cae of hand clasping, if you join the fingers of your hand (I do not how to explin it exactly), you should see wheter your right or your left thumb is up. If your left thumb is above your right that is the dominant trait expressing. And if your right thumb is above , well you have the reccesive allele expressing. I hope I had contribute. =) Giorgio.

no, because dominant is different from recessive, its impossible to have a dominant-recessive trait because the dominant is when only one copy of the gene is present, while in… the recessive a trait that must be contributed by both parents in order to appear in the offspring, in short the dominant is for single parent, while in the recessive is a product of two parents.

That would be a heterozygous genotype
If that happens, it would be a trait, like PP, would be homozygous in that trait. if it's heterozygous, like Pp, the big P is the dominant one and it would be the one to be ex…pressed.
they are the same because the are both genes, the only difference is if you have a dominent and a recessive gene the dominante will trumph the recessive gene
It is not genetic, shown by the fact that a good percentage of identical twins are differently handed. actually, right handed people have the dominant trait. So if you are l…eft handed, you have a recessive trait and not the dominant trait
It is a recessive trait
is dwarfism a dominant or recessive trait?
At this point, no one can say for certain that autism is even a genetic trait, as the causes are not fully known or understood. There are certainly some genetic factors tha…t seem to play into whether someone will develop autism, but it isn't as simple as dominant/recessive genes. Environmental factors, diet, vaccines, and other variables have also been suspected as autism causes or triggers. If it were strictly a genetic disorder, it would be a recessive trait. If it were dominant, the number of people with autism would be much greater. The logic behind that is probably beyond the scope of this question.
it is recessive
A dominant trait is a genetic trait which may cause a hereditary condition, a recessive trait disappears or goes in the background and only shows in a few generations.
First of all alleles code for different traits all across an organism. Simply looking at it, a dominant allele is a trait that essentially "dominates" or is expressed over a r…ecessive allele. In theory every organism (that is not asexual) receives one allele from its father and one allele from its mother. If both of these alleles are dominant (homozygous dominant) than the dominant trait is expressed, if one is dominant and one is recessive (heterozygous) than still the dominant trait is expressed. However, if the alleles for both traits are recessive (homozygous recessive) than the recessive trait will be expressed.

because when you have and dominant and recessive trait the dominant we always show up
