    Good morning. I will try. blood group is determine by a particular antigen that is found on our red blood cells. Genotype on the other hand, is determined by the arrangement of the amino acids that make up our red blood cells. So, genotype is what is inside the cell while blood group is what is on the cell. Blood group can be A, B, AB and O. Genotype, A A, AS, SS, AC, SC etc.
