What Is a Recessive Allele? - JStor
together in a heterozygote, the dominant allele sup- presses the action of the recessive one. This belief is not only incorrect but it can lead to a whole series of.
Mendel's principles of heredity, observed through patterns of inheritance, form the basis of modern genetics. - Some alleles are neither dominant nor recessive.
