A Phenotype is the physical expression of an organisms genotype*. It is the collection of observable characteristics determined by the organism’s genetic makeup.

Not all genes contribute directly to distinct phenotypes, but all phenotypes are linked to a organism’s genotype. Phenotypes can be influenced by the allele*s present at more than one genetic locus as well as by environmental factors.
