Dominant is an allele that will always be expressed in a heterozygous individual.
Recessive on other hand are traits that will only be expressed in a homozygous condition.

Organisms receive one allele for each trait from each parent, thus you have two alleles for each trait.

That's strictly a human view point. In fact there is no such difference, you just have two different proteins (one from each gene) which have behaviors relative to each othe

What is the difference between recessive and dominant traits?

For example, maybe you have blond hair. That means the dominant trait is blond. Recessive is when you have maybe a black hair gene in you but it is not as DOMINANT which makes

What is the difference between recessive and dominant trait?

Every chromosome in a normal cell is paired, with one half coming form the male parent and the other form the female parent. The chromosome contains genes a dominant gene will

What is the difference between dominant alleles and recessive alleles?

The difference between a dominant allele and a recessive allele is that if a person inherits one dominant allele and one recessive allele the dominant allele will appear as it
