Blood Type Inheritance in Humans

Humans have four blood types: type A, type B, type AB, and type O. Depending on the alleles an individual inherits, these blood types can exist as complete dominance or codominance. Type O is recessive to both type A and type B. Inheriting type A or B with type O will result to complete dominance. If an individual inherits type A and type B, they will express codominance (type AB).
