Recessive Gene As White Paper

a: Recessive gene ~
b: a piece of white paper

What: "The recessive gene is like a white sheet of paper and the dominant is like a colored dye. The color will always show up, but the white cannot over power the color. If there are two whites however then the offspring will be white." Or maybe the dominant gene is like a bossy person.....see the link for the rest.

It's Dimmer

a: Recessive gene ~
b: a star

What: "Think of it this way: a dominant gene is like the sun and recessive genes are like the stars. If the sun is in the sky the stars cannot be seen even though they are there. Likewise, when a dominant gene is present the recessive genes are all hidden."

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.
