==Why this isn't in mutation==
I made this article (and redirected the morphs from mutation) so that a student of genetics can easily find a comparison of Muller's terms. It's important to keep them together with the genetic definitions (e.g. m/+ > m/m). Now it would be nice to have a simple real-life example for each morph. Dr d12 02:34, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Please translate into english
Increasing wildtype gene function reduces the phenotypic severity of an antimorph, so the phenotype of an antimorph is worse when heterozygous than when in trans to a gene duplication.
Hey, can someone please tell me what it means to be "trans to a gene duplication"? I've heard of chemical cis and trans isomers but what does trans mean here? Does it mean that a hetro is worse than a homozygous normal condition? Isn't that a given considering that a homo would have only functioning alleles?Tourskin (talk) 22:23, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
And I agree that unfolding the jargon is important. Now that "Neomorph redirects here" etcetera (I got dropped here pursuing a link to "dominant negative") this article has wider exposure than just "so that a student of genetics can easily find a comparison of Muller's terms". I'm guessing that I might find that it's explaining "dominant negative" in functional terms relating to genetics experimentation using fruit-flies circa 1946, but it doesn't really help me towards the current contextual understanding of "dominant negative". I was researching "Myotonic Dystrophy" for family reasons. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:42, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
