This rating offers you a bit of information for geneticists, this notation indicates that the set of alleles, of which 2 are located in the person or body chromosome, autosomal, and not of their sex chromosomes, for human beings X and Y. Now, depending on the mode of inheritance, this combination is allelic to which phenotypic or another feature that implies, will be different. For example, if it is incomplete dominance, would be to show an intermediate between the 2 pure-breeding of the parental organisms. Assuming that is the complete domination, this combination genotypic is heterozygous, because it contains one dominant and one recessive allele for the trait it encodes.
