    Genotypes are the genetic makeups of organisms and are typically referred to with respect to the specific traits they describe. Genotypes exist in the form of genetic data such as DNA or RNA. While it is typically used to describe the genetic basis for a specific trait, the term genotype can also be used to represent the summation of a creature's genetic code. The term even applies to genetic information that is not expressed in some visible trait, as some genetic code is not actually observably expressed but is still a part of an organism's overall genetic information.
