Navigating SNP & Gene pages

Your SNP & Gene pages show what genotypes you have for different genetic variants (SNPs):

Here are definitions for each column shown on the SNP tables:

Variant (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)

Alternative Allele: Learn more about alternative alleles here

Impact: The impact scores reflect how much of an impact that variant influences that gene. The higher the impact score, the more it affects the gene.

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