    Hi there.

    I'm not a biology student, but I chose an outside option related to biology and I have to write an essay about the genetic bases of colour blindness(describing the genes/molecules that are thought to be responsible for this). Would you please be so kind as to recommend me some books related to this?

    thanx

    The wiki article is probably a great place to start. It has a whole section on the evolutionary explanation, and also the genetics of color blindness. I'd explore the references there as a solid place to begin.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_blindness

    Wikipedia is a great place to start, the references are usually great for scientific articles. What kind of materials do you need? I take it you don't need journal articles as they wouldn't cover something so broad.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    journal articles are a good idea too.

    I would also like you to reccomend me other books/journal articles than the references on Wikipedia (if it's possible)

    Can anyone actually recommend me a book/article?
    I looked for some books in the library, but I didn't find a book containing a good description of the molecular basis of colour blindness(I found briefly descriptions, in books about vision deficiencies)
