Answer: the condition in which different genes are neither dominant nor recessive
for a single characteristic
incomplete dominance
Incomplete dominance is a form of Gene interaction in which both alleles of a gene at a locus are partially expressed often resulting in an intermediate or different phenotype. It is also known as partial dominance .
Incomplete dominance can occur because neither of the two alleles is fully dominant over the other or because the dominant allele does not fully dominate the recessive allele. This results in a phenotype that is different from both the dominant and recessive alleles and appears to be a mixture of both. This Punnett square shows incomplete dominance. The homozygous red flower has two dominant red alleles and these are represented by the letters RR.

Incomplete dominance is rare in humans; we're genetically complex and most of our traits come from multiple genes. However there are a few examples. Incomplete dominance is just part of what makes our species so complicated and interesting. The disease familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an example of incomplete dominance. One allele causes liver cells to be generated without cholesterol receptors while another causes them to be generated normally.
