I'm working on SNP genotype panels relevant to ME/CFS patients (and might see if I can come up with a better methylation/detox one). My lovely fiance has the code mostly completed, but needs data as to how the result should look. I want to keep things pretty simple. I don't like "+/-" = "positive/negative" because of the up/down association, which can get confused with up or down regulating genes. Same thing with the red and green colors. So first of all I want to mark known up- or down- regulated genes separately. Blue for down-regulated (cooler, slower color) and red for up-regulated (warmer, faster color). And since some panels are looking at risk-factors versus regulation, I want to use a non-color way to mark genes indicating a risk-factor. My current system is to put an exclamation mark after genotype results which are "positive" for that panel. This way it's easier to make it clear when a homozygous and heterozygous result are both "positive", instead of heterozygous results always looking semi-positive even when there's no risk from a heterozygous result. I'm also debating whether to make non-positive results in normal print, while positive results are in bold, either for the allele or for the entire line (rs, allele, and gene). I've got samples of various possibilities in the following image files, so would like feedback on that, as well as any other problems spotted, or suggestions on making results easier to read and understand. The first two sections are all bold, the third section is bold for "positive" genotypes, and the 4th section is bold for the entire line where there's a positive genotype result. Please ignore any shaky or sloppy lines - those won't be in the final version. Some text here to keep the pages separate. In case anyone's curious, these are the results that would be generated for the female sample file from 23andMe. The plan is to get the program producing these results up on the web somewhere soon.
