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.)
A dominant allele is an allele that can take over a recessive allele, so if you have a dominant allele and a recessive allele, then the offspring will most likely have a dominant allele over a recessive allele. The dominant allele is expressed over the recessive allele.
In _____, one allele is dominant to a recessive allele.
A dominant trait is like a leader. If there is a dominant allele and a recessive allele, the dominant allele masks the recessive allele.
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 is stronger or more dominant than a recessive allele the dominant allele is stronger the recessive allele weaker. For instance brown eyes is a dominant allele, blue eyes is a recessive allele.A recessive allele does not always determine the trait.
If an allele is dominant, whenever it's in the presence of another allele, dominant or recessive, the trait that the dominant allele carries is present in the organism. If an allele is recessive, the trait that the recessive allele carries is only present in an organism when there is another recessive allele.
Yes, recessive allele is masked by the dominant allele.
If you have a dominant allele, and a recessive allele, then the dominant allele will always be expressed (hence the term, dominant). You can do more research, but I think that this is right.
A dominant allele is a allele that has a trait that is more likely to be passed on to any offspring over the trait expressed in a recessive allele.
A difference between a dominant and a recessive allele is that a dominant allele is the one that shows and a recessive allele is the one that hides
A dominant allele is an allele where its phenotype will always be represented when the allele for that gene is present. A recessive allele can be masked by a dominant allele when a dominant and recessive allele are present for the same gene. A recessive allele will only present itself when two recessive alleles for a trait are present.
(Apex Learning) The dominant allele determines the trait.
If you have 2 dominant alleles, the gene will be dominant, if you have 2 recessive alleles, the gene will be recessive. But if you have 1 recessive and 1 dominant, the Dominant allele will mask the recessive one.
The Allele That Is Covered By The Dominant Allele Is The Recessive Allele.
It is a recessive allele.
That's called a recessive allele.
The allele would be codominant in which it is neither dominant nor recessive
They will be a "carrier" of the recessive allele, and will express the dominant allele. They are known as heterozygous for the allele.
A recessive allele is only detectable in a homozygous recessive genotype. If a recessive allele is in a heterzygous genotype (with a dominant and recessive), then the phenotype will be that of the dominant's allele. In other words, recessive allele is masked by a dominant allele and cannot be easily detectable unless it is paired with another recessive allele.
YES ALWAYS!!! Even if you have for example, Aa (A being the dominant allele and a being the recessive allele) that trait will always be dominant!
the difference between a dominant allele and a recessive allele is that dominant is written in capital letters while a recessive allele is written in small letters
An organism that has a dominant and recessive allele is called Heterozygote, or heterozygous.
Yes, they are different. A recessive allele gets its name because when in the presence of a dominant allele, it will "recede" and not show, hence the name for the dominant allele.
either dominant or recessiveB = Dominantb = recessiveSo it would be dominate OR recessive.
The recessive allele.
