New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    Hi,
    I just got my 23andme raw data.

    1. What is the best way to analyze the raw data?

    2. when I loog at the data i see for example, this line:
    rsid chromosome position genotype
    rs12564807 1 734462 AA

    How do I know if this SNP is on one allele (heterozygote mutation) or onboth alleles (homozygote mutation)

    Thanks

    1. Run it through geneticgenie.org to pull out the methylation and detox SNPs.

    2. You have to know which allele letter is the mutation. So AA could either be +/+ or -/-. If it says AC, that's always going to be +/-.

    If you use the Firefox browser, you can install an app called SNPtips, which makes this much easier. Wherever there is an rs number listed online, it will have a link showing your results and then links to the research for the results. So then, you can easily look up the research, and see which one is the risk allele.

    Luckily, geneticgenie.org has already done this research for you. So you would only need this if you're looking up SNPs that geneticgenie.org doesn't cover.
