Similarly, it is asked, which is an example of incomplete dominance?
When one parent with straight hair and one with curly hair have a child with wavy hair, that's an example of incomplete dominance. Eye color is often cited as an example of incomplete dominance.
is AB blood type incomplete dominance? combination of alleles traits, however, alleles may be codominant—i.e., neither acts as dominant or recessive. An example is the human ABO blood system; persons with type AB blood have one allele for A and one for B. (Persons with neither are type O.) See also dominance; recessiveness.
Accordingly, how do you show incomplete dominance?
If the phenotype was "red" then r allele is dominant to b. If the phenotype was "blue" then b allele is dominant to r. If the phenotype was "purple" then these alleles show incomplete dominance. If the phenotype had some types of cells "red" and others "blue" then these alleles show codominance.
Why is incomplete dominance not blending?
A trait inherited by incomplete dominance is not a blend of two alleles because both aer equal and appear on the phenotype. Cystic fibrosis, which causes breathing problems and death, is caused by inherited recessive genes.
