What are the three possible genotypes and the two possible phenotypes for a characteristic controlled by two alleles, B and b, with B being dominant and b being recessive?
Genotype Vs. Phenotype:
All of our traits are controlled by our genome. The combination of specific genes that we get is called our genotype. The proteins encoded by our genotype make up our phenotype, or the physical traits of an organism. In genetics, genotype is abbreviated using letters, with capital letters representing dominant versions, or alleles, and lowercase letters representing recessive alleles.
Answer and Explanation:
For a characteristic controlled by two alleles, B for the dominant trait and b for the recessive trait the possible allele combinations and their...
