Genotype/Phenotype

What is geno/phenotype?

if BB= homozygous dominant Bb= heterozygous and bb= homozygous recessive

genotype is the genetic appearance so it could be heterozygous “Bb” but the phenotype would be the physical appearance which would be “BB” because the dominant allele “B” overpowers I guess you could say the recessive allele “b”

geno is the genes in its DNA responsible for a trait. An organism’s phenotype is the physical trait.

it does not always have to do with dominant and recessive alleles though it could deal with epigenetics where the environment affects the genetic expression to improve survival for the organism in order to reproduce
