Genotypenoun

(genetics) The part (DNA sequence) of the genetic makeup of an organism which determines a specific characteristic (phenotype) of that organism.

Phenotypenoun

The appearance of an organism based on a multifactorial combination of genetic traits and environmental factors, especially used in pedigrees.

Genotypenoun

A group of organisms having the same genetic constitution.

Phenotypenoun

Any observable characteristic of an organism, such as its morphological, developmental, biochemical or physiological properties, or its behavior.

Genotypenoun

The type species of a genus; generitype.

Phenotypeverb

Genotypeverb

(transitive) To determine the genotype of.

Phenotypenoun

what an organism looks like as a consequence of its genotype; two organisms with the same phenotype can have different genotypes

Genotypenoun

A group of organisms sharing a specific genetic constitution.

Phenotype

In genetics, the phenotype (from Greek φαινο- (faino-) 'showing', and τύπος (túpos) 'type') is the set of observable characteristics or traits of an organism. The term covers the organism's morphology or physical form and structure, its developmental processes, its biochemical and physiological properties, its behavior, and the products of behavior.

Genotypenoun

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.
