phenotype

phenotype (fe´no-tIp)

Manifestation of a genotype or the combined manifestation of several different genotypes. The discriminating power of the p. in identifying the genotype depends on its level of subtlety; thus special methods of detecting carrier distinguish them from normal subjects from whom they are inseparable on simple physical examination. P. is the immediate cause of genetic disease and object of genetic selection. [G. phaino, to display, + typos, model]
