Each of the forms is referred to as an allele. For example, the gene for red flowers and the gene for white flowers are two different alleles. A locus (plural: loci ) is the location of a gene on a chromosome. The gene for red flowers and the gene for white flowers are two different alleles at the same locus. A single chromosome can have a gene for white flowers or a gene for red flowers but not both. There are two loci illustrated below, one is for flower color and the other is for stem length. Flower color has five alleles and stem length has two.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
