Genomic position & RSID numbers
« on: Wednesday 30 December 20 15:24 GMT (UK) »



Genomic position: 54163954 60348599
RSID: rs9849746 rs35122696

While trying to find an explanation in detail of the 2 above lines which came with my DNA match data I came across the following link

https://medlineplus.gov/genetics/

which will be of general interest, but it didn't help me me with my initial goal.

Can anybody explain to me about the two lines at the top please?  In detail, what do they tell me about a match with these details, and where can I get an interpretation of them?

This is pointing at a specific locus on one of your chromosomes. The first numbers indicate that your match with someone spans that region, i.e. from base 54,163,954 to base 60,348,599 (chromosomes range from around 50,000,000 bp to 250,000,000 bp). The RSID is a SNP identifier. This attempts to map a specific mutant base that you share with a match. SNPs can be used to infer shared inheritance and gene traits.

Thank you, I am hoping for a much more detailed and technical technical explanation.  How do I apply that data?
