What is incomplete dominance in genetics?
This is when one gene does not completely hide the other. This is also
sometimes known as blending. For example, in snapdragon flowers red is RR,
and white is rr, but Rr is pink. In some flowers having only one copy of the
trait is enough to give the full trait. In this case only one copy of the
red doesn't give the full color.
