Researchers Identify Human Skin Color Gene (Mutation).
Ten years ago researchers embarked on a study of zebrafish--a quick breeding aquarium pet. While searching for cancer causing genes, they ended up isolating the gene that makes European skin white, thanks to the golden variant of the fish.

The genetic basis for human skin color has eluded scientists for years, with previous studies pointing to more than 100 different genes involved in the production of melanin--the pigment responsible for skin color and a natural sunblock. Cancer geneticist Keith Cheng at Pennsylvania State University and his team determined that the golden zebrafish--a lighter version of its "wild" cousin--has a genetic mutation that cuts short a protein critical to the production of melanin.

what happens if the gene is disabled, in a white adult, thus allowing the melanin or whatever to start production????/

Then if the person turns black, as a result of the gene therapy or whatever, then the question is , are they white or are they black.
Do they get labled as African, or European? Black or White, or trans colour.
