  • Brown eye colour (BEY), or total brown iris pigmentation is one of the most common phenotypes of iris colour. Data of eye colour as well as hair colour were obtained for linkage analysis through an enquiry in our family material of 832 families from Copenhagen area. By exclusion mapping with 80 markers in 120 segregating families and 290 markers in 5 segregating families, we obtained some indication of a locus BEY2 for brown eye colour on chromosome 15. For possible confirmation, we selected a… CONTINUE READING
