genotype vs phenotype

genotype phenotype


  • 1) genetics The combination of alleles, situated on corresponding chromosomes, that determines a specific trait of an individual, such as "Aa" or "aa".
  • 2) A group of organisms having the same genetic constitution.
  • 3) The genetic makeup, as distinguished from the physical appearance, of an organism or a group of organisms.
  • 4) A specific combination of alleles at one or more loci on a chromosome.
  • 5) The combination of alleles located on homologous chromosomes that determines a specific characteristic or trait.
  • 6) (Genetics) A group of organisms sharing a specific genetic constitution.
  • 7) (Genetics) The genetic constitution of an organism, specifying the particular alleles at defined loci in the genome; -- used with respect to one gene, a specific group of genes, or the entire set of genes within the organism. Contrasted with phenotype.
  • 8) the particular alleles at specified loci present in an organism
  • 9) a group of organisms sharing a specific genetic constitution
  • 10) The type specimen or original description or illustration of a genus. See type specimen, under type.
  • 11) transitive To determine the genotype of.


  • 1) genetics The appearance of an organism based on a multifactorial combination of genetic traits and environmental factors, especially used in pedigrees.
  • 2) The expression of a specific trait, such as stature or blood type, based on genetic and environmental influences.
  • 3) The observable physical or biochemical characteristics of an organism, as determined by both genetic makeup and environmental influences.
  • 4) An individual or group of organisms exhibiting a particular phenotype.
  • 5) what an organism looks like as a consequence of the interaction of its genotype and the environment
  • 6) To evaluate or classify based on phenotype


  • 1) This distinction between the genotype and the phenotype is crucial.
  • 2) Our phenotype is influenced by both our genotype and our environment.
  • 3) He reasoned that this proved that the genotype was more important than the environment in determining intelligence.
  • 4) Your child's genotype is important because certain genotypes respond better to treatment than others.
  • 5) That fixed sequence is known as your genotype, and it sets the parameters for your good health, as well as your relative risk for developing disease.
  • 6) Rapid divergence of phenotype but not of genotype is theoretically possible, but given the genetic closeness of the sampled individuals (and this assumes that the extant Giant tortoises identified as D. arnoldi and D. hololissa really are remnants of the same populations as those given these names but based on old material), should they be recognised as species separate from D. dussumieri?
  • 7) I prefer redheads, yes, but only if their genotype is XX!
  • 8) After Suomi, Lesch, and Higley had grouped the monkeys’ 5-HIAA levels according to their serotonin genotype (short/long or long/long, but not short/short, which was too rare to be of use), they also sorted the results by whether the monkeys had been raised by their mothers or as orphans with only same-aged peers.
  • 9) The 2 studies reported that individuals carrying the MTHFR 677TT variant genotype, which is associated with decreased enzyme activity, lower plasma folate levels, and elevated plasma homocysteine levels, had a statistically significant approximately 2- to 5-fold higher risk of pancreatic cancer compared with individuals with the 677CC genotype.
  • 10) The genotype is the DNA sequence which is found in every cell of the life-form.
  • 11) In modern terms, this is called genotype-by-environment interaction, where the selective effect, s, of a gene changes with change in the environment.
  • 12) This is known as genotype x environment interaction (GEI) and breeding strategies must recognize this feature.
  • 13) ‘What evidence to you have that the genotype of such organisms has not evolved?’
  • 14) ‘Phenotypic plasticity enables individuals or genotypes to assume obviously different phenotypes during the life cycle.’
  • 15) ‘To determine the haplotypes of an individual, the genotypes of both parents may be required.’
  • 16) ‘These strains offer the genetic reproducibility that is so valuable in lab mice, but with a wider variety of genotypes and phenotypes.’
  • 17) ‘If a hypolipidaemic drug were found to be effective in only one genetic subgroup the genotypes would be of more interest.’
  • 18) ‘Eighteen microsatellites were genotyped in order to investigate which population of the adjacent countries was the possible source.’
  • 19) ‘All other plants from crosses involving a resistant mutant line were genotyped.’
  • 20) ‘Many rams have already been genotyped for their ability to pass on resistance to scrapie.’
  • 21) ‘The lines are for when the cost of genotyping a single marker is expressed in the units of the cost of rearing.’
  • 22) ‘This analysis was preceded by genotyping the main ancestors of the southern soybean gene pool for the flanking markers.’


  • 1) We now know that genes modulate biological processes rather than features or traits by themselves, and that the phenotype is the net result of many processes.
  • 2) This explanation seems unlikely to us because the Cit+ phenotype is characteristic of the entire species, one that is very diverse and therefore very old.
  • 3) On the other hand, the metabolically normal obese phenotype, is exemplified by numerous small and functional adipocytes, and thus a normal metabolic profile, despite a high BMI.
  • 4) Daniel Smith: I believe this type of contingency therefore, to be a necessary condition for any change in phenotype requiring more than rudimentary changes genetically, (more than single point mutations certainly), IF, (and that's a big "IF"), those changes occur via the Darwinian mechanism.
  • 5) I believe this type of contingency therefore, to be a necessary condition for any change in phenotype requiring more than rudimentary changes genetically, (more than single point mutations certainly), IF, (and that's a big "IF"), those changes occur via the Darwinian mechanism.
  • 6) The expression of genes is called the phenotype, and it is influenced by a host of different factors, many of them environmental.
  • 7) A phenotype is what a set of genes make: a whole living creature.
  • 8) Perhaps not NDS specifically, but "modern evolutionary theory," "standard model of evolution" and whatever else you want to call it has always assumed evolution proceeds by incremental small changes in phenotype by virtue of the relative success of certain minor variations.
  • 9) The cause and effect relationship between genes and phenotype is observable.
  • 10) ‘Plasticity is the property of a given genotype to produce different phenotypes depending on the environment.’
  • 11) ‘For a parent with observed phenotypes, its actual genotypes can be inferred similarly.’
  • 12) ‘A classic forward genetics approach relies on the identification of observable mutant phenotypes.’
  • 13) ‘The observed data are the genotypes and the quantitative phenotypes of the subjects.’
  • 14) ‘A quantitative model with additive effects was used to link genotypes to phenotypes.’
