No need to order two kits. 23 & Me always provides both haplogroups for male clients.


Thanks, C Sharp!  I plan to order them today!  Patty

So tomorrow we go to the doctor, we already know our secretor status and blood type. What other blood tests should we ask to be tested for that will give us any useful information for SWAMI input? I know Lola once recommended Serotyping but someone else a while back said it had to be more specific. My doctor is open to these tests, but we need to have the proper wording on the requisition. Thanks.

I am assuming SWAMI Xpress not SWAMI GenoType. SWAMI GenoType asks for much more lab data.

Blood group stuff:

It looks like you already have Rh, but if one did not have it, you should get this.

If you are secretor, Lewis is nearly always  a-b+. I would only test if I thought the secretor status was wrong.

If you are type O there is no need to test for subtypes.

It would be helpful to knows MN-but not essential.


More data it would be helpful to know for SWAMI Xpress


Your PROP Taster Status
Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups
Y Chromosome DNA Haplogroups

C Sharp, is there any benefit to knowing your Duffy blood group?  I have wondered about that one.

Duffy is primarily of interest because of it relationship with Malaria resistance.

For resistance you want to be Fy(a-b-).  If you are Caucasian, this is very rare-so you could assume you are not duffy negative without doing any testing.

Fy(a+b+): 49% Caucasians, 1% Blacks, 9% Chinese
Fy(a-b+): 34% Caucasians, 22% Blacks, <1% Chinese
Fy(a+b-): 17% Caucasians, 9% Blacks, 91% Chinese
Fy(a-b-): <1% Caucasians, 68% Blacks, <1% Chinese

Duffy is asked for in SWAMI GenoType, but not in SWAMI Xpress.

23 & Me gives you a likely Duffy value, but it is qualified "genetic changes other than the SNP 23andMe reports may allow people to be Duffy-negative even if they do not have ... " the SNP measured by 23 & Me.

Thanks C Sharp!  I just got my 23andMe test kits today.  I may as well wait for that result and I can always test later if I think it is important.

I just read an article in our local newspaper about 23 and me involving a study of Parkinson's. If you have been diagnosed with the disease you can  receive all of your genetic info free by participating. My Dad has had Parkinson's for years and is ok, he is 81, but has had to give up golf and fishing is slowly becoming more difficult. He believes his Mother had the disease so now I am wondering how inherited it really is? I always thought it was environmental...haz mat, etc. My Dad (BT O-) has owned an underground pipeline company most of his life and been exposed to numerous chemicals,etc. I don't know if he would do this study.

Just curious...does anyone know if the A2 in the breast cancer gene BRCA2 is the A2 we know here as a sub type of BT A?

Parkinson's has both an environmental factor and genetic component.

First-degree relatives of people with Parkinson's are twice as likely to develop Parkinson's than those without such a relative.

Males are more likely to develop than women.

Not the same.

The BRCA2 gene encodes the breast cancer 2 susceptibility protein.
