Example of Incomplete Dominance

'Incomplete dominance' refers to the concept of 'dominant' genes. In the case of an incomplete dominance, there are multiple possible results based on different allele forms and locations. This is partial gene expression, as dictated by the alleles. Because neither gene is dominant and both affect the individual, traits of both parental characteristics may occur. Incomplete dominance is also called co-dominance and blended character.

Examples of Incomplete Dominance:

Flowering snapdragons can produce multiple colors in multiple combinations because of the incomplete dominance of their genes. They can also produce successively different colorings with each flowering. The net effect in a bed of perennial snapdragons is a collection of constantly variable flowers.
