In genetics, a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) denotes a specific position at an exact location in the DNA where genetic variations are known to occur among humans. The human is about long. There are around and roughly 4 to 5 million of those are wide-spread global variations. Different variations in genetics letters at these locations can have effects on your body.
The snp of the day is featured in green and highlights the letter combination C/C. In DNA there are only four possible letters: A, T, C and G, which are called . The sequence of the genetic letters is like your personal code, which differentiates you from the rest of the world.
It's that simple! Your personal letter code is what makes you unique!
Each DNA consists of a primary strand (shown with genetic letters in colors) and a second strand with complementary letters. Only the primary strand is relevant for the encoding of information.Browse left and right to see SNPs in the proximity!
Since SNP variations are what makes you unique, they are also responsible for various effects on your body. Effects are either your traits or diseases that you might have. Depending on what genetic letter combination you have, certain effects potentially apply to you.

If your genotype is A/A on SNP rs12913832 you are 49.64x more likely to have blue eyes compared to people with a different one on this SNP.
For people with genotype C/C on SNP rs2230805 the probability of developing this disease is increases by up to 1.7x.
Is your genotype T/T on SNP rs12913832 then you are 1520% more likely to have a darker hair color.
Genotype A/A on SNP rs1552224 is found to increase the likelihood of getting diabetes Type 2 by 2214%.
Our database is regularly updated with the latest scientific research from high quality sources. Genopedia's database currently holds analysis of 3719 studies, resulting in information on 4284 SNPs with a total of 731 effects.
