    Genotype means: The genetic makeup, as distinguished from the physical appearance, of an organism or a group of organisms.Which basically means the general traits that we predisposed to exhibit.Example = eye colour Phenotype means: a. The observable physical or biochemical characteristics of an organism, as determined by both genetic makeup and environmental influences. b. The expression of a specific trait, such as stature or blood type, based on genetic and environmental influences. The clear distinction between the two definitions is the role that our environment plays on the outward expression of our genetic traits.

    lets solve a problem gene A = short stature gene B = blue eyes gene C = Fair complexion now a person has short stature, blue eyes and fair complexion... is a description of his phenotype while a person has genes A, B and C on his DNA is a description of his genotype.

    phenotype is the way you physically look and genotype is how your genes are

    phenotype is basically the physical features like colour, shape, height.. while the genotype is the genetic make up of an individual. a gene is made up of two alleles the capital letter indicates dominant feature while small letter represents recessive feature. for e.g if the alleles in an individual are Tt then it is genotype and its phenotype will be that individual is tall..
