What is a factor that covers up another factor?
Similarly, what is a factor that seems to disappear?
Mendel's great insight was that each trait is caused by what he called “factors” (what we now call genes ). These factors had to occur in pairs, one from each parent, for traits to appear, disappear, and reappear over generations. The visible, or expressed, trait is an organism's phenotype.
Additionally, what do we call the trait that hides or masks another trait? recessive trait. trait of an organism that can be masked by the dominant form of a trait. genotype.
Also to know, what is the hidden gene called?
The allele that is "hidden" is the recessive allele. The phrase "dominant and recessive genes" is often used to mean "dominant and recessive alleles".
Is TT a phenotype or genotype?
Genotype and Phenotype The genotype is represented by letter combinations, such as TT, Tt, and tt. When an organism has two of the same alleles for a specific gene, it is homozygous (homo means "same") for that gene. An organism can be either homozygous dominant (TT) or homozygous recessive (tt).
