Having two forms of a particular gene that are the same, one inherited from each parent. For example, a person with brown eyes who carries another gene for brown eyes - two of the same forms of the eye colour gene.
having an identical pair of alleles for a specific character or feature
Only one allele is present for a particular trait. Both genes are identical.
Having two copies of a single allele for a particular polymorphism. Recessive traits require homozygosity to be observed.

Where the two alleles at a locus are identical.
Possessing the same allele at a given genetic locus across both sets of homologous chromosomes.

Two identical genes (a matched pair) in the same location for the same trait (AA).
Containing a pair of identical alleles.
containing two identical paired genes for a specific trait
Genetic description of open pollinated varieties. When all genes are paired up with their identical genes, so that reproduction (seed set) results in genetically identical offspring. Traditionally achieved through several generations of self-pollinating. In the laboratory homozygosity can be created in one generation with doubled haploid technology See genotype See double haploid See homogeneous
Having two identical alleles of a particular gene, e.g. HH or hh. See heterozygous.
Individuals that have identical alleles for a particular characteristic. Recessive characteristics will only show if an individual is homozygous for that characteristic.
An individual containing identical alleles for a given gene or locus.
having two identical alleles at a specific gene locus
An individual carrying two copies of a gene in each cell.
A homozygous condition exists if the corresponding genes on each of the related pair of chromosomes are the same. The genes may both be normal or disease causing.
Having identical alleles at one or more loci in homologous chromosome segments.
A genotype in which the 2 copies of the gene that determine a particular trait are the same. e.g.(AA)
An organism that has two identical alleles for a certain gene. Usually followed by the form of the alleles, for instance homozygous recessive, which would show the scarce trait.
If two alleles at a locus that are indistinguishable, the person is homozygous at that genetic location.
When both corresponding genes for one locus are the same version. When a horse is homozygous Dominant to a specific loci, it will throw that trait 100% of the time.
Having identical alleles for a given gene.
having 2 identical copies of a particular gene (eg, each coding for the same particular trait, like blue eyes).
refers to having an identical pair of alleles, one from each parent, as opposed to heterozygous.
(home´ o zie´ gus) [Gr. homos: same + zygotos: joined] • Of a diploid organism having identical alleles of a given gene on both homologous chromosomes. An organism may be a "homozygote" with respect to one gene and, at the same time, a "heterozygote" with respect to another. (Contrast with heterozygous.)
if an organism's genotype is homozygous it has on both chromosomes, either the dominant or the recessive genes for a certain characteristic. So, if the pea plants has a homozygous dominant genotype, it has two dominant genes - TT. If the pea plant has a homozygous recessive genotype, it has two recessive genes - tt.
Having two identical alleles for a given trait.
Alleles of a specific gene pair are alike in an individual.
A one-locus genotype containing identical alleles which express themselves in identical fashion.
Genes of a specific pair (alleles) are alike in an individual.
having identical alleles in the corresponding loci of homologous chromosomes and therefore breeding true
An individual who possesses two identical copies of a gene on a single locus.
Having the same allele on both chromosomes at a given genetic marker, so each parent contributed the identical alleles.
a gene in which the two alleles are the same (e.g., dun/dun). MC1R - a gene, "melancortin receptor 1", located on cattle chromosome 18, which determines the basic coat colour of cattle by determining the production of either eumelanin or phaeomelanin; but its effects can be modified by the TYRP1 gene.
Each individual possesses a pair of alleles for each gene. One allele comes from the mother and one from the father. When both inherited alleles are the same for a particular gene, they are called homozygous. An individual that is homozygous for a particular gene is termed a homozygote.
having 2 alleles of a gene that are the same.
Having identical alleles of one or more genes in homologous chromosome segments.

Possessing two identical forms of a particular gene, one inherited from each parent.
A patient with identical alleles at the same locus of homologous chromosomes is said to be homozygous.
when alleles of a gene are "the same"
When the two genes for a trait are the same...both dominant or both recessive...the trait is homozygous.
Having the same allele for a given phenotypic character on two homologous chromosomes.

having two copies of the same allele for a gene (such as the TT or tt plants).
Having two identical alleles of a gene at a locus on the chromosomes.
Having the same allele at the same locus on both members of a pair of homologous chromosomes. Homozygous also refers to a genotype consisting of two identical alleles of a gene for a particular trait. An individual may be homozygous dominant (AA) or homozygous recessive (aa). Individuals who are homozygous for a trait are referred to as homozygotes.
Genotype in which two alleles of a gene are identical, thus having the same effects on a trait.
