In addition, other researchers had supported the theory of the descendants of explorers from Europe.

It is thanks to a geneticist named Sean Myles that these hypotheses will be refuted. He took saliva and hair samples from 1209 Melanesians, both blond and brown, to discover a mutant gene called TYRP1.
