a: Dominant trait ~
b: the winner in a wrestling match
What: In wrestling there are two contenders. In genetics there are two alleles. When two wrestlers wrestle, at the end of the match one of them ends on top. That is the dominant wrestler. Likewise, when genes combine one has a stronger ability to express its traits.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
