CANNABIS 201 Phenotypes
Phenotypes & Genotypes (Class 201)
Genotype is the collection of genes responsible for the various genetic traits of a given organism. Genotype refers specifically to the genes, not the traits; that is, the raw information in an organism's DNA.
A gene encodes eye color.
In this example, the allele is either brown, or blue, with one inherited from the mother, and the other inherited from the father.
The brown allele is dominant (B), and the blue allele is recessive (b).
(allele is one of two or more alternative forms of a gene that arise by mutation and are found at the same place on a chromosome)
The term "phenotype" refers to the observable physical properties of an organism; these include the organism's appearance, development, and behavior. An organism's phenotype is determined by its genotype, which is the set of genes the organism carries, as well as by environmental influences upon these genes.
