Hello!

Wondering how many Explorers are secretors or non-secretors?
Is it a given that Explorers are non-secretors?

No

You may want to look at the results of our earlier poll:

Thanks. That was interesting. I understand myself so much better. One of my best friends is an Explorer, now I know why we resonate so much with each other. It's interesting some of our quirks are the same yet we each have a very precise difference that seems to balance each other out!
It is comforting to know that we are not the only ones that have such a differing viewpoint.

Explorers who are secretors tend to have "nonnie-like traits".

Or nonnies have "Explorer-like traits".

There is a kind of Asian-sourced non-secretor gene.  I wonder if it could mean there are a substantial group of Explorers in Asia as well.  I had expected Explorer to be Euro-centric, but there are not going to be any research programs looking into this for some time.

PS the chart linked shows much more in the way of non-secretors genes than you would expect.

Do you have a link somewhere explaining all those haplotypes and numbers? I can see that there's a lot of "H7" in Eastern Europe (where my ancestors came from).

Paul,

Thanks for that. How would I figure out my halotype?

Need DNA testing.
