    Human skin colour is controlled by several gene pairs. Let us assume here, that there are just three gene pairs on different chromosomes and that for each pair there are two alleles - an incompletely dominant one that codes for melanin deposition and an incompletely recessive one that codes for no melanin deposition. If a very dark skinned person marries a very light skinned woman, what will be the chance that their offspring will have very dark skin?

    They appear to quite big and complicated but are simple. Light skin = aabbcc Dark skin = AABBCC A cross between two will lead to pure \(\sf F_1\) hybrids AaBbCc None of the progenies will have Pure dark or Pure light skin

    But if the \(\sf F_1\) progenies mate among each other then 1/64 of the \(\sf F_2\) progenies will be light skinned and 1/64 will be dark skinned
