Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Many thanks Valentijn. The information overload of that dbSNP page has blown a fuse in my feeble brain,... but very interesting!

    I am a bit confused as to why in the dbSNP page population data table, in the "Genotype Details" columns, there is not only AA, AG and GG, but also A, G and N. Why these single values of A and G? And what does N mean? Don't people always have two versions of the SNP, maternal and paternal?

    The AA/AG/GG is for genotype frequency (actual, not calculated) and the A/G/N is for allele frequency.

    The genotype column has A, G, and N in it because some idiot didn't enter the data correctly for one of the groups :p

    Hey Valentijn,

    I had a full round of celiac screening done last year. I did not test positive for any celiac antibodies, however DQ2/DQ A1 & B1 revealed I am positive for DQ8 (2 copies of DQ A1, one copy of B1).

    After receiving/exchanging info from a few other members (to whom I say SO many thank yous), it looks like I am type 4-3-53. (Crap.)

    Thank you guys so much for your input. Having someone to ask these technical (and occasionally scary) questions is a wonderful support.

    Would anyone able to decode my lab result?

    I have HLA-DR blood test, result is
    DRB1 03,
    DRB1 16

    The Serotype of DRB1 03 is DR17, SSO PCR; HLA-DR gene on Chromosome 6P21.

    Thank you very much!!!

    perhaps someone can read something out of mine, too?
    they were taken for a donation program, so possibly nothing "complete", just relevant for determining donorship or so..
    i wrote them down in a hurry, hope i got it right, they look a bit different from yours above...
    appreciate any input!

    HLA-DR 1, 4
    HLA-DRB1* 01MV, 04JEF

    i was not permitted as a donor, btw, due to some hla-stuff...
