Complete dominance is a genetics concept used in heterozygous alleles. The dominant allele completely suppresses expression of the recessive one so that a homozygous dominant and a heterozygous individual are phenotypically indistinguishable.

Complete Dominance: Where in the dominant gene completely masks the effect of the resesive gen in heterozygous conditions. Ex. Tt or Rr. Incomplete Dominance: When 2 or more alleles influence a phenotype. Ex. Flowers. Codominance: When both alleles for a gene are expressed in heterozygous offspring. Ex. Bloodtype.
