Dominant vs. Recessive Phenotype

Dominant vs. Recessive

A dominant allele is an allele when present that determines the phenotype in an organism while a recessive allele had no affect on an organism’s phenotype unless there are two recessive alleles. In this picture, there is a man with brown eyes and a woman with green eyes. The man has the dominant allele for brown eyes while the woman has the recessive allele for green eyes.
