What is the difference between genotypes and phenotypes?

(B) A genotype is the inward development of genetic structure, while a phenotype is the outward manifestation of that development.


Genotype and phenotype are not specific to genders, but are found in all humans, male and female. Although they involve genetic coding, they do not perform the exact same function and phenotype, as an outward manifestation, is also influenced by environment.
