Well, today I was enlightened
in my Biological Anthropology
class. We are discussing what causes variation
in different generations of a family. It just happens that we got into a discussion of which traits are dominant
and which are recessive
. My professor gave us the following examples of traits that are dominant, yet less common than their alternate recessive trait.
All of those traits are statistically the minority
traits. According to what knowledge I possess that means that most people have a homologous recessive gene
for these traits.
