Default Re: Genetics Problem..

Depends a bit on the kind of mutation. If the albino mutation is recessive: The husband will in 100% of the time pass down a normal pigment gene. It's 50/50 for the woman. So even if the egg has the albino mutation in it, the normal pigment gene from the husband will compensate for that.

If it's dominant, than the woman and the husband both don't cary the albino mutation, so no, they will not have albino children in this case.
