Heterozygous

Having two different alleles at a locus. When used to refer to the whole genotype, indicates that the individual has different alleles at most loci. When used to refer to a species as having low or high heterozygosity relative to other species, indicates that the species has a relatively high number of variable loci.

heterozygous

In a living organism, having two different alleles for a given trait. In homozygous organisms, by contrast, both chromosomes carry the same allele. In an outbreeding population an individual organism will generally be heterozygous for some genes but homozygous for others. For example, in humans, alleles for both blue- and brown-pigmented ey...
