Mendel's Experimental Design
Science's Reaction to Brilliance
Recessive Trait: A gene that gets "covered up" by another gene that codes for the same kind of trait. ( Ex. Blue eyes get "covered up" by brown eyes)
Co-Dominant Trait: Gene that is neither dominant nor recessive. They both show up. ( Ex. Blood type, you can have AB instead of just A or B.)
