Heterozygote

Science / Marine Biology / Heterozygote: With respect to a given genetic locus, a diploid individual carrying two different alleles

Dominant

Science / Biology / Dominant: Refers to an allele of a gene that is always expressed in heterozygotes. MORE

Overdominance

Science / Marine Biology / Overdominance: Selection favoring heterozygotes MORE

Dominance

Science / Biology / Dominance: The property of one of a pair of alleles that suppresses the expression of the other member of the pair in heterozygotes. MORE

Codominance

Science / Biology / Codominance: A type of inheritance in which heterozygotes fully express both alleles. MORE

Complete Dominance

Science / Biology / Complete Dominance: The type of inheritance in which both heterozygotes and dominant homozygotes have the same phenotype. MORE

Incomplete Dominance

Science / Biology / Incomplete Dominance: A type of inheritance in which the heterozygote has a phenotype intermediate to those of the homozygous parents. MORE
