    Had to pull this article up to settle a argument with a homey who was adamant that geno and pheno meant the same thing. And of course they don't. Heres a snippet and the link for the entire explanation...….. Enjoy

    Genotype vs Phenotype

    Genotype and phenotype are terms used to differentiate between the genetic makeup of an organism and the way it expresses itself. There are interesting differences between the two terms. Let’s find out what they are:

    A genotype refers to the actual set of genes that an organism carries inside. When these genes are expressed under observable conditions, they are called phenotypes and the expressions are called phenotypic expressions. Interesting, isn’t it? Wondering how they are different? After all, how can a man be different from the genes he has inherited?

    The fact is, phenotypes are dependent on the genes they inherit. However, their expression is also influenced by environmental factors. The influence of the environment modifies the role that the genes play to a certain extent. The expression of the genes, modified by environmental factors, produces a phenotype.

    A genotype basically determines the type of traits that a phenotype can have. For instance, the genotypic traits of an organism will determine his susceptibility to a certain disease. However, the phenotypical aspect of the organism displays observable aspects of this disease. The symptoms related to the particular aspect of the disease, the presence or even the absence of such a disease are phenotypic expression.
