11. Co-dominance: in genetics, an instance in which two different but equally powerful genes produce a phenotype in which both genes are expressed 12. Carrier: in genetics, individuals who possesses a recessive gene associated with a disease who can transmit the gene for the disease to their offspring even though they do not have the disease 13.

Poly-genetic: influenced by multiple pairs, interacting with multiple environmental factors, rather than by a single pair of genes 15. Single gene: genetic mechanism through which a characteristic is influenced by only one pair
