The word dominant has many meanings like ruling, governing, controlling, etc. It is even used in genetics and is known as dominant gene and is the one articulated when heterozygous with a recessive allele of the gene.

In genetics, a dominant allele is usually addressed to a genetic feature which covers the recessive allele. A dominant allele refers starts a phenotype which is visible in a heterozygous genotype. Many trails are resolute by a couple of complementary genes, each of which is innate from a solitary parent.

Time and again when these are put together and evaluated, one gene will be found to efficiently shut out the directives from the other, recessive gene. A dominant allele when put down in a genotype is all the time written before the recessive gene in a heterozygous duo.
