Explanation:
Those are the proper terms whe referring to genetic mutations process. Both are types of mutations. On the other hand, homocigoto y heterocigoto are types of mutant cells. Therefore the terms here are homocigótico y heterocigótico.

Explanation:
Hello

Here is what I found out at google.com:

Ocurre cuando la aptitud de Darwinian de un heterozygote excede la aptitud de ambos homozygotes, una situación mencionada arriba. Entre la selección que balancea heterótica también conduce al equilibrio genético pero no a un equilibrio la mutación y la selección de normalización. El polimorfismo equilibrado se establece que es debido a la selección que favorece los heterozygotes contra los homozygotes. En una población sexual de reproducción los heterozygotes tienden, sin embargo, para producir una cosecha fresca de homozygotes en cada generación.

Apparently, there is no adjectival form.

Just to add my 2 cents....


Explanation:
"Homocigota" y "heterocigota" siempre terminan con "a". Es como otros adjetivos sin género en español('patriota', 'eucariota', 'altruista').

Hello again

Correcting and complementing my previous answer:

... se habla de individuo homocigoto y si son diferentes se habla de individuo heterocigoto.
En una población humana pueden existir más de dos alelos para un ...

It seems you may use both forms.

Me again....


Explanation:
You can also say 'recesivo' (instead of "homocigota") y 'dominante' (instead of "heterocigota").

Significan lo mismo y se usan más que los otros términos en los contextos clínicos.

En este caso en que las dos palabras son adjetivos, dado


Explanation:
que modifican a las mutaciones, creo que el modo apropiado es:

homozygous = homocigótico (o en tu caso homocigótica)

heterozygous = heterocigótico (o en tu caso heterocigóticas)

pues en ambos casos se esta refiriendo a las mutaciones genéticas.
