Genotype-phenotype

Post by Elinor » Wed Apr 09, 2008 11:31 pm

Hi everyone there is a question that I havent been able to find an answer for so if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

What factors affect the genotype-phenotype relationship?

I believe the relationship refers to how the phenotype is an outward expression of the genotype but I'm not sure what exactly affects it.

Suppose you have the gene for tallness. What actually can affect tallness as well?
