Genotype refers to the genetic traits in an organism. It has to do with the genetic coding of an organism. Such coding is inheritable . The genotype is the genetic load that is copied every time a cell divides, and therefore is inherited down to the next generation. . genotype is something y…ou can't see with your eyes (ex. dominant, recessive, heterozygous) Phenotype refers to observable, physical manifestations of an organism. The phenotype includes physical characteristics, behaviors corresponding to such species, structures, organs, behaviors, relfexes, etc. . phenotype are things that can be seen with your eyes. (ex. colors, growth) The genotype is the genetic programming that provides the phenotype. ( Full Answer )
Genotype are the unseen differences in genetic combinations of anindividual. Phenotypes are the expressed and seen differences of anindividual. A genotype is the genetic makeup of an organism with reference to asingle trait, set of traits, or an entire complex of trait; thatis, genotype is the type… of genes you have. A phenotype is thephysical characteristic of an organism. So the genotype decides thegenetics and inherited traits of an organism, but phenotypes referto the actual display of these traits. Genotypes are decided byinherited genes, while phenotypes are determined by the effect ofenvironmental factors as well. The more complex a biologicalprocess, the more is the effect of environmental factors on it andtherefore the chances of a predominant phenotype. For example, say recessive allele t codes for albinism (acongenital disorder) and dominant allele T is normal. Twoindividuals have different genotypes: TT and Tt. Because they bothhave an allele T, neither have albinism; therefore, they havedifferent genotypes but the same phenotype. An individual with agenotype tt would have albinism and would therefore have adifferent phenotype than the previous two. Another example: Identical twins have the same genes and the samegenotype. Every now and then a gene in one of the twins will beexpressed differently from the gene in the other twin. They willhave different phenotypes. So phenotype is a fancy word used when agene works one way under certain conditions and a different wayunder other conditions. An easy way to remember that (from what I've learned from myscience teacher) is to think "Pheno" as "Photo", like if you take apicture, you'll only be able to see the outside of somebody; whatthey look like. . In more detail: Take alleles R and r. If R and R display a " complete dominance " relationship, then RR , Rr, and rr are differentgenotypes, but two are the same phenotype. RR and Rr display thesame trait because R is completely covering up r's trait,but rr will show the recessive trait. EX: A flower with R as a red trait and r as a white trait has thefollowing phenotypes for each genotype: . RR: red . Rr: red . rr: white Additional information: If R and r display a " co dominance "relationship, then RR, Rr, and rr are different genotypes andphenotypes. RR shows the dominant trait, while rr shows therecessive trait. Rr shows a co mbination of the two, as ifthe two were dominating co operatively. EX: A flower with R as a red trait and r as a white trait has thefollowing phenotypes for each genotype: . RR: red . Rr: red and white . rr: white If R and r display a " incomplete dominance " or" incomplete inheritance " relationship, then RR, Rr,and rr are different genotypes and phenotypes. RR shows thedominant trait, while rr shows the recessive trait. Rr shows when R incompletely dominates r, allowing some of its qualitiesshow. EX: A flower with R as a red trait and r as a white trait hasthe following phenotypes for each genotype: . RR: red . Rr: pink . rr: white ( Full Answer )
Genotype is represented as a symbol. It is what genes you have. Phenotype is represented as your physical characteristic. It is the observable effect those genes have.
The genotype of an organism is the group of characteristics derived from a combination of heredity and environmental factors. Genotype is based on genetic factors only. . phenotypes are the genes that an organism carries. For example, the gene for blue eyes could be b and the gene for brown eyes co…uld be B. Bb is a genotype. Phenotype is the trait that show up. Since brown eyes are dominant, the phenotype of Bb would be brown eyes. ( Full Answer )
The difference between genotypes and phenotypes is simple: Phenotypes are the physical traits that are determined by the genotype. For example: Let's say that AA means attached earlobes. The AA is the genotype and the attached earlobes are the phenotype.
Phenotype, This is the "outward, physical manifestation" of the organism Genotype, This is the "internally coded, inheritable information"
A genotype describes the genetic constitution of an individual, that is the specific allelic makeup of an individual, usually with reference to a specific character under consideration. For instance, there are three possible genotypes for the human albino gene, and it has two allelic forms, domina…nt "A" and recessive "a"; And a phenotype describes any observed quality of an organism , such as its morphology , development , or behavior , as opposed to its genotype - the inherited instructions it carries, which may or may not be expressed.

Genotype and phenotype are very similar-sounding words that are related, but actually mean different things. Whereas genotype is the set of genes responsible for a particular trait, phenotype is the physical expression of that trait. For example, two organisms that have even the minutest diff…erence in their genes are said to have different genotypes, whereas two mice of different genotypes might both be white, and share that particular phenotype. . An individual's genotype is the genetic code they carry in their cells that provides information for a particular trait. Their phenotype is the visible, expressed trait, such as hair color. The phenotype depends upon the genotype but can also be influenced by environmental factors. . Genotype Partly inherited by offspring, as one of the two alleles is passed on during reproduction. Phenotype can't be inherited. . Genotyping is done by using a biological assay, such as PCR, to find out what genes are on an allele (Inside the body). Phenotyping is done by observation of the individual. (Outside the body) . Examples of genotype are DNA, susceptibility to diseases. Examples of phenotype are Hair color, eye color, weight.

Genotype is the actual set of genes (called alleles which match the same location of each pair of chromosomes) carries by an organism (or in other words, the letter the gene gets).. In contrast, phenotype is the observable characters and traits (genes). In other words, what genes show up.
A Phenotype is an organism's physical appearance, or visible traits. A Genotype is an organism's genetic makeup, or allele combinations.
Phenotype means the characters which are observed in the organism. These characters are physical changes which may be directly seen on the organism.. Genotype means the genetic constitution of the organism. The genotype results in the phenotype.. A genotype is the actual composition of the… alleles present on each chromosome for a particular gene in an organism. A phenotype is the observed trait in the organism. For example, let's say the gene for being tall is represented by the letter "T". If the "tall" gene is dominant, then the other possible gene in that locus would be "not tall" or "short." The gene for short would then be represented by "t" and the gene for tall would be represented by "T". Humans have 46 chromosomes and are diploid organisms. therefore, we have 2 pairs each of 23 different chromosomes. The loci on homologous (similar) chromosomes are not always exactly the same. The chromosome containing the gene defining whether you are tall or short could have a T or a t. Let's say one of the chromosomes has a T and the other has a t. That means the genotype would be Tt and the phenotype would be "tall" because being tall is dominant over being short. If both chromosomes have T, then the genotype would be TT and the phenotype would be tall. If both chromosomes have a t, then the genotype is tt and the phenotype is short. Short would be defined as a recessive allele, so in order to produce the short phenotype, the organism must be homozygous (have the same allele on both chromosomes) for the recessive allele. Keep in mind that I made this up as a hypothetical example. ( Full Answer )
A genotype is the information carried by an organism in it's DNA... essentially the information carried as genes. ie. you may have a genotype of Bb for a a particular gene, let's say brown hair (one dominant allele, and one recessive allele) A phenotype is the expression of those genes according …to biology's central dogma of DNA -->RNA-->proteins. ie. you are expressing the dominant gene of "B" therefore your phenotype is brown hair ( Full Answer )
a phenotype is the exterior expression of a predisposed genotype, ie. hair colour. These are both due to the genetical makeup of the parent cells.
Genotype is the alleles (different forms of a gene) which an individual has with respect to a particular characteristic. The Phenotype is how these genes are expressed in an individual.
Hi! The genotype is meant the by the type of alleles that are present for the genes (ie. Genetic Makeup) The phenotype is the visible characteristic for the trait. For example: When a tall and a short pea plant are cross fertilized, the phenotype of the resultant plant would be tall, but the actual… genotype would be heterozygous tall, meaning that the short is still in the genes, just not exhibited. Hope this helps. . ( Full Answer )
The relationship between phenotype and genotype is that they bothare part of genetics. Phenotypes are expressed on the outside ofthe organism while genotypes are the genetic make ups of theorganism.

Let's start at the beginning. A genotype is the allele combination for a specific trait. For example, the trait you inherit from your parents for tallness; the genotype may be Tt. The phenotype is the physical appearance. For example, long brown hair, blue eyes, etc. A phenotypic ratio is a ratio… comparing the possible outcomes for an organism based on physical appearance. For example. you may complete a Punnett Square and your outcome is 3 purple : 1 white. This is your phenotypic ratio for flower color. (As an example) The genotypic ratio is the comparison of genetic information, the frequency. This can be expressed as 2:1:1 as an example of a ratio. ( Full Answer )
genotype, the code, PP, pp, Pp phenotype describes with words what the genetics LOOKS like, example: Heterozugous, homozygous, and the trait, in words......
The genotype is the genes inherited. Phenotype is the expression of that genotype. Phenotype is determined by recessive, dominance, co-dominance.
The genotype AA represents a homozygous dominant genotype. The capital letter "A" represents the dominant allele, while the lowercase letter "a" would represent the recessive allele. If both dominant alleles are present in a genotype (homozygous dominant) then the phenotype is "A" phenotype. If one …dominant allele and one recessive allele are present (heterozygous dominant) then the phenotype is "A". Finally, if both recessive alleles "a" are present (homozygous recessive) then the phenotype is "a". Therefore, the answer to your question is the genotype AA would result in an "A" phenotype because the genotype is homozygous dominant. ( Full Answer )
Blue eyes is an example of a phenotype. A genotype is the genetic code for a characteristic and a phenotype is the physical appearance of that characteristic. Blue eyes, brown hair, dark skin, and long fingers are all examples of phenotypes.
A phenotype is the actual appearance of a trait, such as blue eyes or brown hair. The genotype is the symbol for that trait, such as BB, Bb, or bb.
The Genotype Delineation is like a snapshot of what is going on in Total in the Entire Chromosome Mass at one Time, while the Phenotype is completely and 'exclusively' the End Result of the machinations that occur under control of the Cellular Genotype . That having been said, The Phenotype ele…ments are generated from the Genotype elements, so the Answer here is - a protein [the phenotype derivative] is analyzed to determine its amino-acid sequence and from this the genotype determining Dna nucleotide sequence that determines the sequence of the amino acids in the proteins is defined.

Genotype relates to the genetic makeup of an individual, and refers to all the genes on your chromosomes, whereas phenotype refers to the physical attributes that exist as a result of the genotype. Taking eye colour as an example, your phenotype will be brown eyes, and your genotype will be the two …genes (one from the sperm and one from the egg). Only one of these two genes (the dominant one) will contribute toward your phenotype. ( Full Answer )
A phenotype could be eye colour, as a phenotype is the outcome of what your genes contain (Like eye colour, hair colour etc. but not the features influenced by the enviroment.)
Your genotype determines your phenotype. Your genotype is the genetic makeup you have for a certain trait, for example, eye color, and your phenotype is the physical outcome of that gene. Say brown is dominant and blue is recessive, and your genotype for eye color is heterozygous brown, or Bb. You w…ill have brown eyes because brown is dominant. However, someone with the genotype BB will also have brown eyes, but their genotype was different. ( Full Answer )
A phenotype is a physical characteristic of an organism, such as a tall pea plant. An organism's genotype is the specific gene combination that makes up a characteristic using Punnett Square. For example, a tall pea plant might have a genotype of TT or Tt, whereas a small pea plant may have a genoty…pe of tt. (Note: In this case "T" is dominant and "t" is recessive.) ( Full Answer )
There are many analogies used to show difference between genotypeand phenotype. One analogy is to compare phenotype to the frostingof a cake and genotype to the cake.
Genotype is the allele combination and phenotype is the physical appearance of the result of the genotype. Genotype for tallness may be: Tt Phenotype example: Brown hair, blue eyes, widow's peak, etc.
The phenotype is what the genes make the characteristics look like. For example, if EE is for large eyes, and ee is for small eyes, you can determine the phenotypes from these. If the genotype is EE or Ee, the person has large eyes. If the person is ee, then he or she has small eyes. Normally,… you would be given this kind of information to determine the phenotypes of a given genotype, since capital and lower letters can stand for any trait that the person wants. ( Full Answer )
R is likely expressed, which makes for that phenotype. The genotype of the plant is probably heterozygous, but since I do not know the plant, or genes, I can say no more.
XXY-Klinefelter syndrome People with Klinefelter syndrome are also tall male phenotype. They are sterile, may show mild mental impairment, and may develop enlarged breast because of the extra X chromosome.
The genotype is the genetic makeup of a cell, an organism, or an individual usually with reference to a specific character under consideration. A phenotype is the composite of an orgnism's observable characteristics or traits: such as its morphology, evelopment, biochemical or physiological pro…perties, phenology, behavior, and products of behavior (such as a bird's nest). Phenotypes result from the expression of an organism's genes as well as the influence of environmental factors and the interactions between the two. ( Full Answer )
It Means...... Genotype= is all of the genes it has. Phenotype= is two copies of the same gene.
A phenotype is the actual result that you can actually see, whereas the genotype is the allele or gene that causes the phenotype. Lets say that brown hair is dominant and which is caused by an allele that we'll represent with B, and lets say that red hair is cause by a recessive allele that we'll re…present with b. A genotype is represented by a combination of 2 of these alleles. So we have BB, Bb and bb as our possible genotypes of the child. One of the alleles is from the mom and the other from the dad. BB means that both of the parents have brown hair, which means the offspring will have brown hair, and since both parents have brown hair and brown is dominant, we call the offspring homozygous dominant for that genotype. Homozygous means the same. Bb means that on parent has brown hair and the other has red hair or at least carries the red hair trait. This offspring will have brown hair because B is dominant over b. We call this heterozygous dominant. Heterozygous means different. Last we have the bb. this means that either both parents have red hair or both have the traits for red hair. This offspring will have red hair because they do not have any dominant genes. This is called homozygous recessive. Now this is just an example. hair color is gets much more complicated then this but that's the basic idea for all genotypes and phenotypes. I hope this helps at least some. ( Full Answer )
Genotypes are the specific allele combinations that an individual contains pertaining to a certain trait. Phenotypes are what is expressed due to the genotype. (recessive/dominant/codominant)
Definitions: phenotype is the constellation of observable traits; genotype is the genetic endowment of the individual. Phenotype = genotype + development (in a given environment). To consider these in the context of evolutionary biology, we want to know how these two are related. In a narrow "ge…netic" sense, the genotype defines the phenotype. But how, in and evolutionary sense, does the phenotype "determine" the genotype? Selection acts on phenotypes because differential reproduction and survivorship depend on phenotype. If the phenotype affecting reproduction or survivorship is genetically based, then selection can winnow out genotypes indirectly by winnowing out phenotypes. ( Full Answer )
You do it by using a Punnett Square. For example- if two mice breed and have the traits Bb and BB (B= brown hair and b=black hair) then you can determine it like this: B B B BB BB b Bb Bb The parent genes go on either side, and are pulled down one at a time to determine the possibilities. The…n, to figure out the ratio, you can just look at the possibilities. There is 100% chance of their offspring having brown hair~ 50% chance of the offspring having both dominant genes, and 50% chance of them being heterozygous and having one of each gene (though dominant will overpower and they'll have brown hair anyways) ( Full Answer )
To a degree, but it really depends on the particular gene you are considering. For example, in the case of genes with dominant and recessive alleles, if you observe a recessive phenotype, you can infer that the genotype must be two copies of the recessive allele. But if you see a dominant phenotype,… you don't know whether the genotype is two copies of the dominant allele or one copy of the dominant allele and one copy of the recessive. That's why in classic genetic experiments, you do several generations of breeding - you can distinguish an homozygous dominant organism from a heterozygous organism by whether it ever produces offspring with the recessive phenotype. In some cases, where there's incomplete dominance, or where haploinsufficiency, you can distinguish a heterozygote from a homozygote. ( Full Answer )
How do you distinguish between genotype and phenotype heterozygous and homozygous and dominant and recessive?
Genotype is the organism's full heredity information that may ormay not be expressed. Actual observed properties are the phenotype.The phenotype is dependent on the genotype. Genes are homozygous when the same allele (form of the gene)inherited from both parents is the same. When different forms of…the same gene are inherited from parents, they are heterozygous. Dominance refers to the relation between alleles of a gene. Whentwo alleles of a gene combine, the dominant one then determines thetrait that is expressed. In order for a recessive trait to beexpressed, both alleles need to be recessive. ( Full Answer )
genotype are the arrangement of genes in an organism and phenotype is the physical appearance of the organism. Ex. Lets say a plant has the genotype TT for its color, which is pink and another plant has the genotype tt and its color is white. These two plants produce an offspring with the genotype …of Tt and since the pink color is dominant and the white color is recessive, the phenotype of the offspring plant will be pink ( Full Answer )
The fact that something is homozygous has nothing to do with it's genotype or phenotype. A genotype is the allele representation (Tt). A phenotype is the physical representation (tall).
Simple calculations can be done using a punnet square if the genetics of the parents are known. If the offspring are being examined the phenotypic ratio can be calculated by observation. Genotype can be more problematic. Homozygous recessive traits will have an obvious phenotype with a matching gen…otype. Determining which offspring are heterozygous that are phenotypically dominant can be done by back crosses on homozygous recessive mates. If both the parents and the offspring can be examined...the observer may be able to determine parental genetics and therefore the potential genetics of the offspring more readily. The observer must keep in mind that any genotypic ratios will not be truly known without additional breeding trials. ( Full Answer )
By transcribing the code, which is unique to each organism and general to that species, that builds the proteins that express the phenotype; the physiological and behavioral traits of organisms.
If A represents a dominant allele, then the AA genotype would produce the dominant phenotype.
The genotype against the immediate environment and developmental processes. Each organism has a unique environment too. Think about it. Even identical twins are not totally their genotype because they are subject to not only the same environment, usually, but the unique experiences and formative pro…cesses of their unique environment. ( Full Answer )
A phenotype. Phenotypes are observable, physical traits. Genotypeshave to do with the genetic coding. Since hair type is visible, itis a phenotype.
The genotype is the set of alleles that an organism inherits for a trait. The phenotype is the expression of the genotype. For example, black coat color (B) in mice is dominant over white coat color (b). A mouse with the genotype Bb, will have the black coat color phenotype.
Genotypes are not created by phenotypes, they are the alleles/genesof the organism. Genotypes (in combination with environment)produce phenotypes. It would be expected that the genotypes Bb and BB would produce thephenotype B.
