I and my cousine carry albinism gene and neither of us have albinism,is it possible to change one of our gene or is there a way that we can born a healthy baby?
Replied on Tuesday, August 9, 2011 3:30 AM
Not exactly sure I understand. You seem to carry Aa, so if you have a baby dude person with someone who is not related to albinos, your children will not have it. However, your baby dude people will have a 1 in 4 chance each that they will have the same traits that you do.
