hi!
here is what i learned years ago in my high-school-'we prepare you for everything-biology-class': the wild allel is the normally appearing version of an allel, also called the wild (or healthy) typ.

i'd go with this def. because i haven't read any other def since i started my prep for the usmle.

but maybe someone has an other (american) def and can enlighten us?

From my vague recollection of biology class 10 years ago, yep! That's pretty much it. Wild allele = Normal allele / Non-mutant
