Mendel's Laws of Genetics   * Law of Dominance and Recessiveness - certain alleles (dominant) can mask or hide  the effect of other alleles (recessive) when they occur in pairs. Dominant alleles will be  expressed when only one is present in a gene pair, while recessive alleles are  expressed only when they occur in pairs.
