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

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.

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 lef…t handed, you have a recessive trait and not the dominant trait
it is recessive
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a dominant trait. So only one copy of the mutated gene is needed to have the disorder...for example, if someone with NF marries another person withou…t NF, then the chance that their child would have it is 50%.
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.
When writing dominant and recessive paired traits, the letter representing the trait is capitalized when the allele is the dominant form and lower case when the allele is the …recessive form. For instance, to show a hybrid for some trait "A", the genotype would be Aa - one dominant allele (A) and one recessive allele (a). However, this only holds with a completely dominant/completely recessive single gene pair. For straight vs curly hair in humans, both the straight allele (S) and the curly allele (C) are incompletely dominant over each other. A person with straight hair has the genotype SS, a person with curly hair has the genotype CC and a person with wavy hair (intermediate between straight and curly) has the genotype SC. Polymorphic genes (such as for eye color in humans) and multigenetic traits get more complicated in the denomination.
Galactosemia is an autosomal recessive trait.
In order for a recessive trait to be seen in an organism, the organism needs two copies of the gene that codes for that particular trait. A dominant trait only requires one ge…ne to be present., as that one gene would code for enough of the protein to overpower the other recessive gene present.
I think I read somewhere that there are some variants of it that are recessive and others that are dominant.
Some are dominant while others are recessive. There can also be co-dominant traits though. It all really depends on what you are looking at. For example Gregor Mendel with his… peas, wrinkled vs. round and yellow vs. green were simply dominant or recessive. But if you look at the flower snapdragon then you can have a red one and a white one and mix them together to get a pink one because both of the genes are dominant and therefore co-dominant.
"Height" Is not either. It's like saying, "Is Eye color recessive or dominant?" You would have to say, "Are Brown eyes a recessive or dominant gene over blue eyes". If you are… asking if being "Tall" is recesive or dominant, it is multifactoral. So if your parents are tall, chances are you will be tall. If they are short, chances are you will also be short. There is no specific "Tall Gene" so your question can't be answered how you want it.
There are many different types of color blindness, with the most common being red/green color blindness. The trait is recessive and X-linked.
