Y less

Went back to see the geneticist today, and the plot gets more and more boring all the time. It seems that rather than having a bit of a Y chromosome translocated to chromosome 15, I have a variation in chromosome 15 which coincidentally looks enough like a bit of a Y chromosome to flag it up on a FISH test. It has been reported in the literature once in 1999, and seems unlikely to do anything whatsoever - well except produce false positives.

So apparently this is the pregnancy of false positives. I am now waiting on being told that something is drastically wrong with one of the tests I did today and then being told that it was just an error....

No longer a mutant, just a variation....

  1. Damn. I wanted to be able to claim to know a unique mutant! Never mind, variety is the spice of life and all...heheheh.

    Good to hear the GTT results were as they should be.
