Who Discovered Genetics and How Did He Do This?

The Difference between Dominant/Recessive Alleles; Heterozygous/Homozygous; Genotype/Phenotype
Dominant Trait- Observed trait of an organism that masks the recessive form of a trait. Recessive Trait- Trait of an organism that can be masked by the dominant form of a trait. Heterozygous- When there are two different alleles for a trait. Homozygous- When there are two identical alleles for a trait. Genotype- Combination of genes in an organism. Phenotype- Outward appearance of an organism, regardless of its genes.
