One of a set of alternate forms of a gene. An example is the different alleles of eye color. Each of the different forms of the gene code for eye color, only each codes for a different color i.e. blue, brown, green.
Any one of a series of two or more different genes that may occupy the same locus on a specific chromosome. As autosomal chromosomes are paired each autosomal gene is represented twice in normal somatic cells. If the same a. occupies this a. If the a.'s are different, the individual or cell is heterozygous for both a.'s.
genes that control the same inherited trait (such as height or eye color); they are located at the same position (locus) on homologous chromosomes
any of the alternative forms of a gene at a given locus
Alternative forms of the same gene.
Pair of inherited genes (alike or different) that affect a particular trait. _prosocial_behavior" altruism, or prosocial behavior Behavior intended to help others without external reward.
Minor variations of the same gene.
two types of genes, which are dominant and recessive
Alternative forms of various genetic units; the term is traditionally associated with different forms of a gene, but is now used in reference to different forms of any kind of identifiable genetic element.
Different versions of the same gene at a single locus. For example, there are three versions of the gene that determines ABO blood type in humans.
Different forms or variants of a gene found at the same place, or locus, on a chromosome.
different versions of the same gene (found at the same locus but in homologous chromosomes or in different individuals) that may produce different phenotypes.
variations of the same gene, ie. blue and brown are both alleles of the eye colour gene.
alternative versions of a gene
genes which are alternatives for each other
At any locus, variation may exist between people. Each of the forms or variations is called an allele.
Alternative of a gene for a particular characteristic.
The exact same or slightly different alternative forms of a gene, one inherited from each parent.
Genes that carry inheritable characteristics. Alleles come in pairs, and the two genes together determine the characteristic. Homozygous alleles refer to pairings with two identical genes, heterozygous alleles refer to pairings of two different genes.
Alternative forms of a gene. For example, the mutants putA601 and putA736 each have a different mutation in the putA gene.
A group of genes that are similar, but are distinct, due to one or more mutations in the genetic code.
Alternative versions of the same gene, for example different alleles of genes are responsible for different eye colours.
Variations of a gene.
One of the alternative forms of a gene. For example, if a gene determines the seed color of peas, one allele of that gene may produce green seeds and another allele produce yellow seeds.
two different forms or versions of a gene that occupy corresponding positions on homologous chromosomes. A person has two alleles of a trait--one from each parent.
Alternate forms of genes. Because genes occur in pairs in body cells, one gene of a pair may have one effect and another gene of that same pair (allele) may have a different effect on the same trait.
variant forms of the same gene. Different alleles produce variations in inherited characteristics such as eye color or blood type.
Particular forms of a gene. Alleles usually occur in pairs, at the same gene locus, on an organisms homologous chromosomes. If both alleles are the same, the organism is homozygous, if they are different, the organism is heterozygous.
Alternative forms of a genetic locus; a single allele for each locus is inherited separately from each parent (e.g., at a locus for eye color the allele might result in blue or brown eyes).
Alternate forms of a gene or DNA sequence, which occur on either of two homologous chromosomes in a diploid organism.
one of two or more alternate forms of a gene.
Alternative forms of a genetic characteristic.
"B" and "b" are different alleles.
Alternate gene forms or variations, which are the basis of DNA testing.
Different forms of the same gene.
Alternative forms of a gene, eg for blue eyes or brown eyes.
Alternate forms of a particular gene.
One of the pair or a group of genes that occupy a specific chromosome at a specific position. Different possible characteristics for one trait
Different variations of the same gene.
Alternate forms or varieties of a gene. The alleles for a trait occupy the same locus or position on homologous chromosomes and thus govern the same trait. However, because they are different, their action may result in different expressions of that trait.
One of the different forms of a gene that can exist at a single locus (spot on a chromosome) or site.
