B-but, throwbacks. Recessive v. Dominant.

Read the thing again, bro. The kid had brown eyes. The parents had blue. Blue is a recessive allele, meaning all blue-eyed people are bb (not carrying the B allele).

Therefore, two blue-eyed parents cannot have a brown eyed kid
Good to see someone who knows a little about genetics though

PS: OP probably reposted this **** . Hence "OP is a reposting **** ", not "dumb **** "
lavitts is right

Alright it looks like you know your science. What about red hair? Is it recessive or a mutation? What am i!

I'm sorry to tell you, but it means you have no soul.

well everything's a mutation. Red hair is recessive. Like, there's several genes for hair color and how many of those you have for dominant or recessive will determine your hair color. Red means you have no dominant hair genes, black means you have them all, and everything in between depends on how many are recessive/dominant, and which ones they are.

Although in a simplistic sense you are correct, genes aren't simply BB , Bb or bb (otherwise there wouldn't be enough genotypic variation for the all of the different possible phenotypes) Instead of maybe 2 gene loci (e.g.bb) responsible for eye colour, we could be maybe looking at several loci (e.g. bbbbb), with some positioned on different chromosomes. Each of these alleles may interact differently in different conditions and so we also have to consider factors affecting gene expression (which I won't go into). My basic point is if you read up on Polygenic inheritance and Gene expression to higher than basic education allows, we can quickly see that the simplistic model doesn't work. Having brown eyes would be possible contrary to what the post suggests.

Yes but you can still have brown eyed children, as the parents alleles can be different to those in their gametes.

Hello Mr.

Its anon here, and may i ask you something?

um, is like. Green more recessive than blue, cuz they are equaly "light" and well.. how come some ppl (like me) have green/brown eyes, ect. I never got this in natureclass. im not the smartest :3



K, bye!

Blue is more recessive than Green. Although Green is less recessive than Brown it has been known to override the Brown gene. Also only 1-2% of the world has Green eyes. Sometimes environmental factors can make a gene dormant or activate it.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

actually more than one gene can be responsible for eye color, so it's more complicated than just which is recessive and which is dominant.

(I'am an english speaker excuse my grammar)

Your grammar was fine until the sentence about your language skills, lol XD
