I had a request for some info on albinism. While this mutation can affect any species, the most information is offered for humans. Albinism is characterized by a lack of melanin in the eyes skin, and hair. Ocular albinism is more common than full albinism. All types of albinism are usually accompanied by poor vision. The genes associated with albinism have been identified in humans.

For more information, click through the picture. There are lots of useful links. Thanks to solongtodevotion for the request.
