sister has brown eyes, other two siblings have blue eyes. what gene is dominent?

Brown over blue

Siblings
In general, the gene for "brown" eye is dominant and the gene for "blue" or :hazel" is recessive. Everyone is born with blue eyes, but in those of us who are genetically destined to have brown eyes, the irides (irises) will turn brown in the first six months or so of life. Those of us who are destined to be "blue"or "hazel-eyed" won't have that iris color change over time.

Can you tell me if I could have a child with green or blue eyes even though I have dark brown eyes?

Yes

Head-eye
Your eyes require only one brown dominant eye color gene to make you brown, leaving room for a green or blue recessive gene in your mix. Dad would need to have a similar recessive gene to add, but these are possible.

Im mixed asian and white and is brown eyes black hair. my husband is blue eyes blonde hair. my daughter got blonde blue eyes how did she get blue eyes?

Mixed genes

Children
You have a recessive blond hair/blue eye gene from your Mom and a dominant black hair/brown eye gene from your Dad. Your husband has a recessive blond hair/blue eye gene from both of his parents. You both passed your recessive blond hair/blue eye gene to your daughter, and so that explains the appearance of all of you.

Dominant traits

It appears that those traits that your daughter has are dominant and just happen to be the traits that your husband has.

I have baby blue eyes . How did I inherit it if my father is a Black African from Ghana with brown eyes and my mom being mostly of a white origin with baby blue eyes . She is of 1/2 Greek,1/4 Egyptian , and 1/4 Italian . How did I end up with the same ver

Recessive trait

Blue_eyes
Blue eyes are inherited as a recessive trait. This means you must have the "blue eyed gene" from both parents. Brown eyes are dominant which means you only need one "brown eyed gene" to have brown eyes. Your father must have one blue eyed and one brown eyed gene, and your mother has 2 blue eyed genes. Your inherited one from each of them. Ethnic background has nothing to do with it.

Two genes did it

Blue_eyes
If mom had blue eyes she could only give you a blue gene.For you to have blue eyes, your dad had to carry a silent blue gene that he gave to you rather than his dominant brown gene. It doesn't matter how many cultures the genes passed through. This is straightforward stuff.
