How do I read the SNP tables?

The SNP tables show what genotype you have for different genetic variants (SNPs).

Here are definitions for each column on the SNP tables:

SNP: pronounced "snips", these are Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms or genetic variants; please see this video to learn about SNPs
Genotype: The alleles or variants you carry in this particular SNP
Frequency: Allele frequency; the relative frequency of the allele for this SNP in a population (based on your ethnicity choice when you signed up)
Risk Allele: Please see this article here
Importance: The importance scores reflect how much research there is to back up a particular association. The higher the importance score number, the more research there is.

If you have any other questions, please see Genetics 101 and Science FAQs.
