    Homozygous recessive. An example of this would be if someone has a genetic disorder, and they have children who do not show signs or symptoms of it, but then their children have it, that would mean that the original parent passed to their children a recessive gene. Think of it as an inactive particle in your body. You are just carrying it in your DNA with nothing to activate it.
