Allele is word used by Mendel for counter parts of an elementon later called factor and renamed as gene e.g. T and t are alleles for a gene that controls height in pea plant .Nasty allele is not biological term .

Note word elementon is technical term used by Mendel , it is not element used in Chemistry .
