I'm a genetics student at the University of Glasgow. I like to think I'm funny, and like to laugh, so here I am

There are other ways ofc how to achieve dominance as a gene.
There are intermediate genetics aswell where one dominant gene will only produce a "light" version of the dominant phenotype (some flower that I forgot the name of has the recessive white trait, a red dominant type and an intermediate pink type).
Oh and a dominant gene could also code for inhibitors that block the recessive pathway. Genetics is complex I'm sure I covered only a tiny bit of possible ways to achieve dominance in genes.

Heavily depends on the gene. Sometimes it's as simple as that:
The dominant gene codes for the production of a protein.
The recessive one doesn't.
Let's take a color for example.
If you have the dominant gene that codes for the starting protein of a long cascade of colorproduction you will defintely see the color in the organism. Even if you only have one dominant gene.
If you have two recessive genes noone codes for the said starting protein -> no color. So no color is the recessive trait because as soon as a dominant allele is present the color will be there.
