Eye Color Genetics
As the saying goes, “the eyes are the windows to the soul”. Our eyes are also a window into our genes. Like many of our physical features, eye color is determined by genetics.
Although there are only a few eye colors, there are many gene combinations. Examining eye color genetics can be a great way to understand genetics as a whole. In this experiment we will study eye color genetics by predicting eye color inheritance among family members.
