(kō-dom'i-nant),
In genetics, denoting an equal degree of dominance of two genes, both being expressed in the phenotype of the individual; for example, genes A and B of the ABO blood group are codominant; individuals with both are type AB.

adj.
1. Of or relating to two alleles of a gene that are both fully expressed in a heterozygote.

In Botryllus, the primary fusion/rejection response is controlled by a single, highly polymorphic locus, in which the sharing of one, or both, codominant alleles leads to fusion, and the absence of a shared allele leads to nonfusion or cytotoxic rejection (Oka and Watanabe 1957; Sabbadin 1962; Scofield et al.
Given the codominant property, microsatellites have a wealth of segregation information and the transferability across populations.
For the SSR markers, all the alleles were treated independently as a binary variable with I for presence and 0 for absence, because heterozygous status for codominant markers in the true breeding cultivars or lines was very rare, if any.
