- ‘Phenotypic plasticity enables individuals or genotypes to assume obviously different phenotypes during the life cycle.’
- ‘If a hypolipidaemic drug were found to be effective in only one genetic subgroup the genotypes would be of more interest.’

Investigate the genotype of.
- ‘Many rams have already been genotyped for their ability to pass on resistance to scrapie.’
- ‘This analysis was preceded by genotyping the main ancestors of the southern soybean gene pool for the flanking markers.’
- ‘Eighteen microsatellites were genotyped in order to investigate which population of the adjacent countries was the possible source.’
- ‘All other plants from crosses involving a resistant mutant line were genotyped.’
- ‘The lines are for when the cost of genotyping a single marker is expressed in the units of the cost of rearing.’
