A recessive gene is a gene that is not dominant but only manifests when a gene of both parents is the same, i.e., homozygous (where both genes are the same as in two genes for blue eyes). When there is both a dominant gene (brown eyes) and a recessive gene (blue eyes) in an allele (heterozygous), then the dominate gene manifests.
