Answer You have 2 alleles for each trait you may have. One is on the chromosome from you mother, the other is on the other chromosome from your father. You h…ave 2 of each of our 23 chromosomes (one from mom, one from dad). This is why you look a little or a lot like your parents.
2 alleles per trait Normally two for qualitative trait and many for quantitative trait in a 2n individual.
Recessive traits require two recessive alleles.
Theoretically, each trait has at least two alleles, one inherited maternally, and one inherited paternally. If the two alleles are different then the individual is termed hete…rozygous. If the two alleles are the same, the individual is termed homozygous for that trait. If more than one set of alleles determines the trait then you are talking about gene interactions, which there can be quite a few different types of interactions. Response: Awesome Thanks
alleles. Specificity in the name of each allele can only be given if the trait is designated. For example, in horses, the allele E is the dominant allele at the extension si…te The allele e is the recessive allele at the extension site. The E represents "not red" and the e represents "red". (Some would use the termnology black and red). Genotype
Homozygous is the term used to describe an individual that has two of the same alleles. This term can be used for either dominant or recessive (both BB and bb are homozygous).… Therefore you would probably call them a homozygous dominant individual.
