Some questions about genetic nomenclatures
I've been doing some research for the dog genetics pages and I've got some questions about nomenclature. For example on the wikipedia page for dog coat color genetics it goes into the extension locus and names them Em, EG, E, and e. The order I just listed them is is stated to be the order of dominance. Now the question rises as to why in Em the m is lowercase and in EG the G is uppercase? Is there a method to this maddness or was whoever wrote the article a bit random?

Oh I changed the input format

Oh I changed the input format to full html so that I could enter the nomenclature correctly. When you reply you won't be able to do that sorry (unless your an admin).
