Melanin is the main pigment responsible for skin, eye, and hair color. Variation in a number of genes, including the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R), agouti-signaling protein (ASIP), oculocutaneous albinism 2 (OCA2), solute-carrier transport protein 45A2 (SLC45A2), and solute-carrier transport protein 24A5 (SLC24A5), have been associated with pigmentation. Functional and bioinformatics analyses support the biological role of variants (rs1805007, rs2424984, rs12913832, rs16891982, and rs1426654) associated with these genes
