genetic phenotype

Post by ladwer » Mon Nov 05, 2012 6:52 pm

hello, so i have some questions that i need someone to explain it to me

what happens to the concepts dominance and recessiveness when we are able to read the DNa sequences in both loci in an individual who is heterozygous for a particular gene? and if we want to describe this genetic phone type, do we describe it as dominance, co-dominance or incomplete dominance?

thank you

Its like, if we consider tall character as dominant and dwarf as recessive the if the heterozygous is tall the tall is dominant and is the heterozygous is not tall and dwarf it is codominance.So i dont think reading the dna sequence changes anything.
