Heterozygote and Homozygote give same phenotype o Incomplete Dominance 1. Heterozygote have phenotype in- between the phenotypes of the two homozygotes 4. Codominance 0. Heterozygotes have phenotypes of BOTH homozygotes Lethal Alleles 5. An allele that causes death at an early age of development 6.
