    Article on inheritance of red eyes in koi

    Recently article on inheritance of red eyes in koi has been published. Please see corresponding file attached. Earlier I already posted on forum description of main findings:

    Inheritance of red eyes in koi and unexpected appearance of many pigmented fish

    The article has similar content but written in more scientific style. Also, article's Discussion can be used as a review of genetics of albinism in fish.

    Thank you for posting this article. I will need to read it a few more times. The concept of partial demelanization helps so much in explaining things we observe.

    And, a huge thank you for the work you are doing! You are adding a layer of understanding of koi that goes beyond the old boundaries.
