Genotype and phenotype are very similar-sounding words that are related, but actually mean different things. The?genotype?is the set of genes in our DNA which is responsible for a particular trait. The?phenotype?is the physical expression, or characteristics, of that trait. For example, two organisms that have even the minutest difference in their genes are said to have different genotypes. These two mice may have different genotypes and both can still be white if they share the particular phenotype for white fur.
