Hello all i recently read an article that discussed the punnett square statistics in reference to "double het" Leo's

He described it using letters to represent traits
ex: [aa] is an albino trait and [pp] is an patternless trait

His goal was to describ how you'd get an [aapp] gecko, "Albino patternless"

This kind of confused me, because i don't know much about the genes of Leo's but i thought they just came in two's, one from each parent. Such as [aa] crossed with [pp] would give you [ap]
...Can anyone understnad what's confusing me? Do non-double hets only carry these double gene combos vs using 4 letters to represent the genes of a gecko? I can't think how to describe it to well right now Lol, sorry, but maybe someone can see into my madness and help clear my understnad!
Thanks! :D
