Thanks Nikki for giving me today’s Medicine Mondays at MommyMd.org! I wish I could have given you a straight answer regarding Danger’s eyes, but we now know that eye color is from complex inheritance patterns and does not follow the simple Mendelian Patterns of inheritance that we all remember from high school.
It was exciting to do some of the research. I let the dishes sit and went exploring on the internet. I’ve always really liked genetics. It’s one of the main reasons why I chose pediatrics. It’s an opportunity to get at the beginning stages of a diagnosis. Frustrating but pretty cool.
