What type of cell is responsible for the color and tone of our skin?

There are cells within the bottom layer of the epidermis (the stratum basale or stratum germinativum) called melanocytes. Melanocytes secrete a pigment called melanin which is responsible for giving our skin its color. Their main function though is to shield the nuclei of the keratinocytes (the main cells of the epidermis) to protect them from ultraviolet radiation from the sun. That's why we appear to tan in the sun.

What to genes do?

Genes, or genetic material, are basically instructions encoded in DNA for building cells in an organism. Genes code for many different traits like blood type, hair color, and skin color. Scientists frequently debate the role of genetics in behavioral traits, the nature vs. nurture argument. Currently it is unknown to what extent genes code for things like violence or altruism.
