Hear they are in simple words:
Dominance: the phenotype is determined by only one gene, called dominant gene. The other one is recesive
Codominance: in the genes for determining the blood type the gene for type A and the gene for type B. together, form a new phenotype: AB
Incomplete dominance: if you cross pea with white flowers with pea with red flowers you get pink flowers. It is a sort of dominance, but not exactly

Codominance:Incomplete dominance

Post by UHtrackTee » Wed Feb 22, 2006 1:25 am

MrMistery:
I notice that you didn't really give a defination of Codominance. I surpose the person you are answering to just asked you to put it in your own words. In addition, you said of incomplete Dominance is "It is a sort of dominance, but not exactly" thats seems like a strange way to talk about something. its almost like about a mexican and saying he/she is sort of White but not exactly. Incomplete Dominance as i understand it, is a blend of the alleles.

I am not sure if you were talking to me... I was not point was not to stop using your own words but merely saying you weren't not being clear. And the answer to your question if i have tried using my own: is YES. Perhaps clearing things up seem not to be amongst the platform on this blog. assuming of course there is one at all.
In addition a Phenotype is NOT determine by the genotype alone.

We do not force people to accept our definitons, if you didn't like it go and buy a biology dictionary rather than criticizing people.

By pure coincidence I was reading about this subject yesturday (which was like a hr ago).

Here are my definitions:

Dominance: Both alleles are expressed but the proteins products of one allele affects the phenotype much more strongly than the other. The result is from an unmicroscopic view, the person has the phenotype of the dominant allele.

Codominance: Both alleles are dominant and so their protein products both contribute to the phenotype fully, as in the eg MrMistery put.

Incomplete dominance: Both alleles are neither dominante or recessive and both their protein products show up phenotypically but not completely, like in MrMistery's eg.

Hey, that's not fair. I'm new here too, and it looks like people here are just trying to help others. And everyone replies with information that you can just google yourself if you want.
