Example sentences for: overdominant

How can you use “overdominant” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Population heterozygote advantage (black) may be observed even when resistance is not overdominant, but only dominant, additive, recessive or only underdominant, as long as allele frequencies are sufficiently far toward the lower right of the parameter space (high diversity of resistant alleles and low diversity of susceptible alleles).

  • We have shown that when allele-specific overdominance exists, it will often be manifest as population heterozygote advantage, but that a finding of population heterozygote advantage may be consistent with other patterns of allele-specific effects; for example, when resistant and susceptible alleles are equally common and equally diverse, population heterozygote advantage will occur if allele-specific effects are additive, dominant or overdominant.

  • Each panel reflects a different assumption about the true genetic basis of resistance - assuming that resistant alleles are overdominant; dominant; additive; recessive; or underdominant.
