Albinism is a rare genetic condition, occurring in only one in every 17,000 to 22,000 individuals in the world (Campbell et al. 2003; Gronskov et al. 2007). Conduct a library or online research and answer these questions:

  1. What can you conclude about the allelic frequency of the a​ ​ allele globally?
  2. Where do you think the a​ ​ allele would be more commonly found, among the heterozygotes (Aa) or the homozygote recessives (aa)? Why do you say so?
  3. What happens to an individual who is albino (aa) or who has very low or lacks melanin pigments in the hair, skin and eyes?
  4. Based on your answer in c, how would you explain the frequency of the a​ ​ allele?
