Dominant-An individual with one dominant and one recessive allele for a gene will have the dominant phenotype. They are generally considered “carriers” of the recessive allele: the recessive allele is there, but the recessive phenotype is not. Dominant-A gene that is expressed phenotypically in heterozygous or homozygousindividuals.

Recessive-A gene that is phenotypically expressed in the homozygous state but has itsexpression masked in the presence of a dominant gene.

Recessive-A recessive gene is a gene that is not dominant, but only manifests when a gene of both parents is the same, i.e., homozygous (where bothgenes are the same as in two genes for blue eyes).

Phenotype-the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.
he appearance of an organism resulting from the interaction of the genotype and the environment.

Genotype-the genetic constitution of an individual organism
Genotype-the sum total of genes transmitted from parent to offspring.
