Genetics Trivia Quiz: Test Your Knowledge!

The genotype is a description of the unique genetic makeup of an individual. It can be used to describe an entire genome or just an individual gene and its alleles. This can be seen in how people have different eye colors or other physical characteristics. A trait may not show up in an individual but can still be passed onto the next generation.
