  allele
In a plant that occurs in tall and short forms, there may be an allele that tends to produce tall plants and an alternative allele that produces short plants.
If the same allele is present twice, the organism is said to be homozygous for this characteristic.
The allele that determines the phenotype is said to be dominantly expressed; it shows dominance over other alleles.

HD allele - A version of the Huntington gene that contains a higher than normal number of repeats.
Individuals with the HD allele will develop Huntington’s disease (Note that although there are many different alleles that can cause HD, for simplicity, this site refers to any allele that causes HD as "the HD allele.") This allele may be called the “mutant Huntington allele” in other places.
The allele, in turn, gives rise to the huntingtin protein.

  Allele frequency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Allele frequency is a measure of the relative frequency of an allele on a genetic locus in a population.
The frequencies of all the alleles of a given gene often are graphed together as an allele frequency distribution histogram.
Let ├║ be the mutation rate from allele A to some other allele a (the probability that a copy of gene A will become a during the DNA replication preceding meiosis).

 Allele - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An allele is any one of a number of viable DNA codings of the same gene (sometimes the term refers to a non-gene sequence) occupying a given locus (position) on a chromosome.
A wild type allele is an allele which is considered to be "normal" for the organism in question, as opposed to a mutant allele which is usually a relatively new modification.

Alleles are defined (i) for the sequence polymorphisms described at the nucleotide level, and (ii) for the Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphisms (RFLP) detected by Southern hybridization.
The allele polymorphism mutations are described according to the IMGT description of mutations.
Allele sequences of highly homologous duplicated genes cannot, in some cases, be correctly assigned to one or the other gene(s) when these sequences are not mapped.

 Allele Code Lists
Allele combinations that contain an expression character (e.g., N = null, S = soluble, L = low expression), or which cross serologic families (e.g., DRB3*0101/0102/0203/0206) are called "allele specific" codes and can only be used with the locus and allele family that were used when it was initially created.
Allele specific codes are used for combinations that cannot be represented by generic codes.
Allele codes can be found, or the activation status of an existing allele code can be checked, by using the DNA Type Lookup Tool.

Now the term allele is used for two or more alternative forms of a gene resulting in different gene products and thus different phenotypes.
A single allele for each gene locus is inherited separately from each parent (e.g., at a locus for eye colour the allele might result in blue or brown eyes).
The term coined by Bateson and Saunders (1902) for a zygote, or a diploid individual derived from it, which carries only one member of the alleles of a gene, that is, a zygote derived from the union of gametes identical (Gk.

 dChip: Allele Sharing Analysis
Then in the allele sharing analysis, all pair-wise sharing between the samples will be computed, and their average sharing score is used as a non-parametric linkage score.
allele sharing view will display the average allele sharing of a sample with all the other samples (blue for 2, white for 0).
After the allele sharing scores (ASS) or LOH scores are obtained for a group of samples, we want to assess the genome-wide significance of the peak score regions and report peak regions that are highly unlikely to be due to random chance.

 Glossary
One of a pair of alleles that suppresses the expression of the other in heterozygous (having one dominant and one recessive allele) conditions.
An allele which has little or no effect on the phenotype of an organism when paired with a more dominant allele; it only has an effect when paired with another recessive allele.
If such an allele is recessive, a female (who has two X- chromosomes) doesn’t get the trait, but a male (who has only one X- chromosome) does.

 A two-allele model with recurrent mutation
the stationary distribution of allele frequencies is bowl-shaped, i.e, most populations have allele frequencies near 0 or 1.
In other words if the population is ``small,'' drift dominates the distribution of allele frequencies and causes populations to become differentiated.
If the population is ``large,'' mutation dominates and keeps the allele frequencies in the different populations similar to one another.

 LGR: Allele Characterizarion
The Allele Characterization Project is a component of the Rat Genome Project - a large collaboration that includes twelve different NIH institutes, centers, and the office of the Director with the goal of developing genetic and physical maps of the rat genome.
The goal of the Allele Characterization Project is to provide the allele sizes of 8000 SSLPs simple sequence length polymorphisms) in 48 genetically and physiologically important inbred rat strains.
The data generated by the Allele Characterization Project provides investigators with a means of quickly selecting informative markers in a vast number of mapping crosses resulting in a significant savings of both time and resources.

Points that are closest to the homozygous cluster are assigned an allele ratio of 0 and those near the heterozygous cluster are smoothed using data from the non-homozygous markers within the 7 marker moving window.
As expected for this cell line carrying three times the allele ratio for the X chromosome is 0.5 (arrow pointing to 1:2 ratio of 0.5) and for the autosomes is close to 1.
There are several chromosomal regions with an allele ratio of 0.5 indicating the presence of three or the multiple of three chromosomes.
