The correct answer is allele. An allele is a variant of the similar DNA sequence located at a given locus, in a specific place on a chromosome; it is one of the alternative forms of the same gene, each of the possible forms of a gene. He has been called a allelomorphic gene. In a diploid cell, there are two alleles for each gene (allele transmitted by each of the parents, although they may be identical). In a population, one can have several alleles of a gene.
