I am reseaching how green eyes are inherited. I know about the BEY and GEY genes and their locations on the chromosomes, also i know about how lipochrome is the pigment that causes green eyes. I have also talked to a couple experts in this field who say the BEY and GEY genes are not the only genes that cause eye color because they have been proven wrong. for example- 2 blue eyed parents logicly cannot have a brown eyed child according to these genes' punnet squares. yet this has happened before. My hypothesis is that green eyes are a result of racial mixing. In areas such as where china and russia meet, where the english colonized africa, brazil, northern ireland- these are all areas where green eyes are very common and I am trying to prove why. I cannot find any genes that make this logicly possible.
