Is the gene for Malignant Melanoma dominant or recessive?
Though with the Human Genome Project in full swing, there may be such a
gene, but my resources do not indicate it. Melanoma clearly seems to be a
product of UV radiation exposure and if there is a gene involved, it is not
turned on habitually and this radiation is a contributor to that end.
