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.)

What is a dominant allele?

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.?

In _____, one allele is dominant to a recessive allele.


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.


Is the recessive allele masked by the dominant allele?

Yes, recessive allele is masked by the dominant allele.


How is an allele dominant or recessive?

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.


When a recessive allele is paired with a dominant allele will the recessive allele be expressed?

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.


What is the difference between dominant alleles and recessive alleles?

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.


Compare a dominant allele with a reccessive allele?

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.


What is the diffrence between a dominant and 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


What is it Dominant allele What is a recessive allele?

A genotype in which there are both a dominant and a recessive allele is called heterozygous.


What does it mean if an allele is recessive?

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.


Is albinism controlled by a dominant allele or by a recessive allele?

Recessive allele.
