Definition of Single Gene Trait?

Answer

The definition of a single gene trait is a single gene with two alleles and each one produces a distinct phenotype. There are several different single gene traits that humans use that can demonstrate individuality in humans. One type of a single gene trait is tongue rolling. The ability for a person to roll their tongue is considered dominant whereas those who cannot are considered recessive. Hand clasping is another type of single gene trait. If a person clasps their hands together and the left thumb is on top, it is dominant. If the right thumb is on top, it is recessive.
