In a heterozygote, one allele conceals the presence of another allele for the same characteristic.
All individuals possess two alleles for a trail out of which only one allele is passed on to the offspring.
The innheritance of any pair of genes from the parent is independent of the inheritance of any other pair.
A form of gene interaction where in both the alleles of a gene at any locus are expressed partially. This results in an intermediate phenotype different from both parents.
Both the alleles of a gene in a heterozygote are fully expressed resulting in a phenotype that contains both traits.
More than just the typical two alleles that usually code for a certain characteristic in a species.
A pleiotropic gene is a single gene that controls more than one trait.
