An allele is one of two or more possible values for a phenotype. For example, in certain pea plants, such as those Mendel bred, they could have one of two phenotypes for colour; either green or yellow. Each type is referred to as an allele. One allele may be dominant while the other may be recessive. It's just a handy term to handle the concept of different possibilities for the same gene.
