Term Definition
Autosomal dominance
Dominance is a condition in which one member of an allele pair is manifested to the exclusion of the other. An autosomal dominant gene is one that occurs on an autosomal (non-sex determining) chromosome. As it is dominant, the phenotype it gives will be expressed even if the gene is heterozygous.
