Are big ears a dominant trait?

Big ears in some species are considered to be a dominant trait. In other species having big ears is a recessive trait.


What does being heterozygous for some genetic trait mean?

the 2 alleles of the gene for the trait are different on the 2 homologous chromosomesBeing heterozygous for a trait means that they have different alleles for a trait. For instance: Tt would be heterozygous and TT or tt would be homozygous because they are both eitehr little or big t's.it mean the gene is not pure or for example suppose a person is blood group A but actually he is having A and O; because O is recessive trait the gene express the A trait instead, making the person having blood group A.


What determines the colour of the person hair?

Your parents. When they have you their certain genes go towards making you. if your parents both have brown hair doesn't mean you will. that just means that the big R is dominate it doesn't mean that the little r wont slip in. You should go to a genealogists for further explanation to see who's recessive trait you got. (explains big R and little r is recessive)


What happens when a dominant and recessive allele are both present?

The resulting offspring will have the dominant trait. It depends on if the dominant is hetero or homo...if it was homozygous then your offspring will have a hetozygous trait showing the dominant trait (to clear this up if you are confused lets say we are talking about brown eyes(BB-dominant) vs blue eyes(bb-recessive)--a homozygous would give you a brown eyed child with Bb and but if the person is heterozygous Bb and gets with a recessive you have a chance of getting Bb or bb giving you a possibility of a brown or blue eyed child)...wow i just made that way more confusing than it had to be


Can an organism be heterozygous recessive for a trait?

Heterozygosity implies possessing both a dominant and a recessive allele and the phenotype that is exhibited in a heterozygote is always the dominant one (hence the name 'dominant'). Therefore, if a phenotype is associated with heterozygosity, it is automatically the dominant phenotype.

What is heterozygous dominant?

It's actually just heterozygous. That means that one allele is dominant and one allele is recessive. The result is a dominant trait, but the recessive gene may come back in future generations.


Can two parents with albinism have an unaffected child?

Yes, Albinism is a recessive trait. You may be carriers of it but it doesn't necessarily mean that your child will have it. Your parents could have been carriers of it but not had it. The albinism just happened to be mixes into your genes.


Why do people have big ears?

Some people are born with big ears. This is common, and is due to genetics. If the mother and father do not have big ears, a look at the grandparents or other relatives will reveal someone who actually does have big ears. This would be due to a recessive trait.


If a homozygous black guinea pig is it dominant to white hair what is the phenotype?

If we assume "S" is the short haired trait, it could be 1 of 2 things. The first is "Ss". The pig still carries the long hair recessive gene, but it is not shown in the phenotype. The second is "SS". The pig does not carry the long hair gene and will probably not pass it onto the offspring. The second possibility is most likely going to happen with a purebred, but the guinea pig could still have gotten a recessive "s" from a parent - short haired or not.
