Dominant and Recessive Eye Color
What is dominant, blue eyes or brown eyes. Which
is dominant: blonde hair or black hair
The lastest information on eye color has changed the dominate/recessive
idea. There are four alleles and eight genes involved. Look up polygenetic.
However, there are more than one gene location that deals with eye color. Green
Eyes seem to have their own location for determining this feature.
It used to be thought that eye color was "the darker, the more dominant",
same with hair.
