a diploid organism having different alleles of one or more genes, producing gametes of different genotypes.
A term designating an individual that possesses unlike genes for a particular trait.
possessing a pair of different genes on homologous chromosomes for a particular hereditary characteristic
Having two different alleles for a single gene (in a diploid organism).
in a diploid cell, having unlike (different information) alleles for any given gene (trait).
Referring to a diploid cell or organism having two different alleles of a particular gene.
having two different alleles for the same genetic character
Containing both dominant and recessive genes for a given trait. Heterozygous individuals do not breed true to type.
Identifies the two alleles of a diploid organism as being different from each other. If both alleles are genetically identical, the cell or organism is homozygous. Often, one of the two alleles is the dominant, the other the recessive allele. If a dominant allele is present, one copy is enough to establish the corresponding phenotype (e.g. dark eye color). The recessive allele for light eye color cannot be expressed, until two copies of the allele (homozygous) are present.
two different alleles that are present for a particular characteristic.
possessing different alleles at corresponding loci on different chromosomes.
Having unlike alleles at corresponding loci of homologous chromosomes. An organism may be heterozygous for one or several genes.
possessing two different forms (alleles) of a specific gene.
Hybrid for any gene pair, with different alleles for the gene being considered, usually one dominant or recessive.
When a person has two different genes at a single locus they are said to be heterozygous.
When a gene has one dominant and one recessive allele.
having alternate forms (allele) of a gene on homologous chromosomes (see homozygous)
Possessing two differing alleles for a trait. (44)

Having different alleles at one or more corresponding chromosomal loci.
the state of having two different alleles of a particular gene (e.g. Aa).
Describes the situation where cells or organisms carry two different versions (alleles) of a given gene. For example, one of the copies of a gene may be the normal version and one a mutant.
describes an owl with more than one version of a particular gene
having different alleles at the same locus on a chromosome; a recessive and a dominant are paired (so the dominant trait is observed).
The situation in which an individual has two different alleles at a given gene locus.
inheriting different alleles at a particular point on the chromosome. Compare homozygous.
Having inherited a different allele from each parent, at a given locus on a chromosome; contrasted with homozygous, in which the same allele for a given trait is inherited from both parents.
an individual having two alleles for a trait that are different
having the two genes at corresponding loci on homologous chromosomes different for one or more loci.
Having two different alleles for a particular gene.
genetic term describing an animal that posses the gene for a recessive gene but does not show the trait, often referred to as a "Het".
Differing with respect to a particular pair of allelic genes.
having dissimilar alleles at corresponding chromosomal loci; "heterozygous for eye color"
Refers to a person who has inherited two different alleles, one from each parent, at a particular chromosome location.

Having two different alleles for a given gene.
having different alleles for a specific character or feature
Having two different alleles for a particular polymorphism.
Having two different genes for one trait, eg. If you carry EvC you have 1 EvC gene and one not.
With two different alleles at a locus, on the homologous chromosomes.
Possessing two different alleles at a given genetic locus across the two sets of homologous chromosomes.
Having one abnormal gene. If you are heterozygote for factor V Leiden you have inherited the trait from one parent.
The condition of having two different alleles at a given locus of a chromosome pair.
Two genes in the same location that are unlike in action (Aa). Dominant traits may be expressed in the heterozygous state.
Containing dissimilar alleles.
Having two different alleles of a particular gene, e.g. Hh for hairy knuckles or AO for bloodtype. See homozygous.
Individuals that have two different alleles of a gene for a particular characteristic. If one allele is recessive and one is dominant, the effect caused by the dominant allele will be apparent.
having two different alleles at a specific gene locus
carrying two different alleles of a gene
A diploid nucleus or cell that contains two different alleles for a particular gene.
Having two different alleles or gene-forms at a given locus of a pair of chromosomes.
An individual carrying one copy of a gene in each cell.
A heterozygous condition exists if the corresponding genes on each of the related pair of chromosomes are different to each other. The different genes may be normal or disease causing.
A genotype in which the 2 copies of the gene that determine a particular trait are different e.g.(Aa)
An organism that has two differing alleles for a gene, one dominant, one recessive.
If two alleles are different at one locus, the person is heterozygous at that genetic location.
When both corresponding genes for one locus are different versions.
Having two different alleles (one dominant, one recessive) of a gene pair.
refers to having dissimilar alleles of one or more genes, as opposed to homozygous.
(het´ er oh zie´ gus) [Gr. heteros: different + zygotos: joined] • Of a diploid organism having different alleles of a given gene on the pair of homologues carrying that gene. (Contrast with homozygous.)
if an organism's genotype is heterozygous it has one dominant gene and one recessive gene. The genotype would be Tt.
Having two different alleles for a given trait.
Alleles of a specific gene pair are different in an individual.
A one-locus genotype containing different alleles which express themselves in different ways.
Genes of a specific pair (alleles) are different in an individual.
having different alleles in the corresponding loci of homologous chromosomes
An individual who possesses two different copies of a gene on a single locus.
Having different alleles at a given genetic marker, one inherited from each parent.
a gene in which the two alleles are different (e.g., black/red).
Each individual possesses a pair of alleles for each gene. One allele comes from the mother and one from the father. When the inherited alleles are not the same for a particular gene, they are called heterozygous. An individual that is heterozygous for a particular gene is termed a heterozygote or a carrier.
having 2 different alleles of a gene at one locus, one inherited form each parent.
A condition in which two alleles for a given gene are different from each other.
Having two genes at the same location that are different.
Having contrasting genes of a gene pair in the same organism. This leads to the production of hybrids.
Possessing two different forms of a particular gene, one inherited from each parent.
this means alleles of a gene are "different". See hybrid.
When the two genes for a trait are different...one dominant and one recessive...the trait is heterozygous.
having two different genes at a given location on the chromosome map.
Referring to an individual in which the alleles of a given gene are different.
Possessing two different alleles at corresponding sites on a chromosome pair; the individual’s phenotype is determined by one or both of the alleles.
Having two different alleles of a gene at a specific locus, i.e., the dominant and recessive genes are both present. These individuals are often called carriers.
Having two different alleles for one particular trait (one dominant and one recessive)
The two genes in a pair are different. For example, one mackerel tabby gene (dominant) and one classic tabby gene (recessive). The individual will display the characteristics of the dominant gene, but can pass on the characteristics of the recessive gene to offspring.
having two different alleles for a gene (such as the Tt plants discussed above).
Having two different alleles of a gene at a locus on the chromosomes.
A genotype consisting of two different alleles of a gene for a particular trait (Aa). Individuals who are heterozygous for a trait are referred to as heterozygotes. (see Homozygous)
Genotype in which two alleles of a gene are different. The effects on a trait will depend on how the two alleles interact.
The state of having different alleles at a locus on homologous chromosomes.
