    Is there any "correct" way to note possible genotypes that a given phenotype might be without having to write a long list?


    an animal shows two distinct traits, lets say albino (recessive) and funky-pattern (dominant). We have no way of knowing if that animal is heterozygous or homozygous funky-pattern so the genotype could be either aaaa FFFF or aaaa F+FF

    If an animal has several dominant traits the list of possible genotype will soon get very large.
