Types of Dominance In Genetics

Types of Dominance In Genetics

  • Gregor Mendel used the term dominant and recessive allele. The gene expresses itself in the first filial generation called the dominant gene and it suppresses the phenotype of another gene of allele called recessive allele. This is called dominance, there are three types of Dominance in Genetics
  • Complete Dominance
  • Incomplete dominance
  • Codominance 
  • Overdominance.
