  • An organism's observable properties, such as its morphology, development, of behavior. It is the result of what happens when various genes interact with one another and the environment. It is distinguished from a genotype, which consists of the underlying DNA sequence, which may or may not be observable. Some genes do not allow for variations of expression in the phenotype, such as blood type. For example, if your blood genotype is BO, your blood type will be B regardless of other environmental factors. For more information, see Churchill (1974).
