This worksheet can be used when doing the genetics unit when you talk about types of inheritance or when you discuss mutations. Albinism has more than one type of inheritance pattern, but I talk only about the OAC types of albinism which are autosomal recessive. There is a quick discussion about autosomal recessive inheritance, then a more detailed discussion about the melanin pathway, and then a discussion about develpment of melanin within the melanocyte. The information finishes with a quick discussion about animal albinos. A question page is included with answer key.
