A dominant trait is a trait that shows up in the offspring (when mixed with a recessive trait the dominant trait shows up). As for a recessive trait will only whow up if both parents pass on the genes for the trait, when mixed a dominant trait the recessive trait doesn't show up. For example, if one parent passed on the gene for tongue rolling and the other parent passed on the gene for non-toungue rolling, the offspring would be able to role their tongue because tongue rolling is a dominant characteristic.

How is a dominant trait different from a recessive trait?

A dominant trait is like a leader. If there is a dominant allele and a recessive allele, the dominant allele masks the recessive allele.


What is difference between a dominant trait and a recessive trait?

Dominant trait is a strong and major trait, while recessive is a weak and minor trait.


What is the difference between a dominant and a recessive trait?

A dominant trait will always cover up the recessive trait. And the only way the recessive trait will show is if there are two of them.


How is dominant trait and recessive trait related?

A dominant and recessive trait are different expressions of the same gene. The different forms of the gene are called alleles.


What is the relation between dominant and recessive alleles?

the dominant trait is the stronger one and the recessive trait is the weaker one


The genotype Rr is reccesive or dominant?

It is Dominant. R is the dominant and r is the recessive. The dominate trait shadows the recessive trait. It is Dominant. R is the dominant and r is the recessive. The dominate trait shadows the recessive trait. Is dominant. dominant can be RR or Rr. but when its recessive its rr.

How is dominant inheritance different from recessive inheritance?

Dominant inheritance is dominant and determines the trait, while Recessive inheritance is hidden by the dominant trait. A recessive trait is exhibited only if both recessive genes are present. Organisms that carry recessive genes but do not exhibit theme are called carriers. If an organism is heterozygous for a dominant trait, each of its offspring has a 50 percent chance of inheriting the trait.


How are dominant trait and recessive trait different?

A dominant trait is the trait that will show. A recessive trait is the trait that is hidden. For example if your mom had brown eyes and your dad has green eyes you would have brown eyes because brown eyes are the dominant trait


Is diabetes dominant or recessive trait?

It is a recessive trait


Is it possible to have a dominant recessive trait?

no, because dominant is different from recessive, its impossible to have a dominant-recessive trait because the dominant is when only one copy of the gene is present, while in the recessive a trait that must be contributed by both parents in order to appear in the offspring, in short the dominant is for single parent, while in the recessive is a product of two parents.


An organism that has different alleles for a trait is heterozygous.?

A heterozygous is a hybrid of genes. It has a dominant and recessive gene. The dominant gene covers over the recessive trait, making the individual have the dominant trait. (trait are alleles...) or apex ans:two

How do you symbolize recessive trait?

A recessive trait is symbolized by a small letter of the dominant trait. for example. the dominant trait is symbolized by 'B' the recessive trait would be 'b'


When does a recessive trait dominant over a dominant trait?

When two recessive genes are inherited, and the portion of recessive inheritance is 51% or greater in favor of the recessive trait.


What is the difference between dominant and recessive genes?

There are no such things as dominant and recessive genes. There are only dominant and recessive alleles. Dominant alleles are parts of a gene that present its features over the recessive allele, which is the one that is always masked by the dominant allele. The recessive allele's trait only shows if both of the alleles in a trait are recessive.


Is tongue folding a dominant or recessive trait?

It is a recessive trait.


How is dominant alleles different from recessive allele?

You need two recessive alleles to get their trait, but only one dominant allele to get that trait. A dominant allele basically overrides a recessive one if they are together, but the recessive gene can show up in offspring.


How does a dominant trait affect a recessive trait?

because it covers up your recessive trait , so only your dominant trait shows
