Findings! 1) A total of 9 variants in Somalis, with allele frequency (~14%) unusually high, when compared to other ethnic groups!! Including: UGT1A4 gene, encoding a protein responsible for catalyzing Xenobiotics & endogenic substrates/drugs.
3) High frequency of HLA alleles, DRB1*03:01 -> which significantly increases Type 1 Diabetes risk & linked with autoimmune hepatitis type-1. (Autoimmune diseases are problem within the community young and old)
4) HLA allele freq- huge difference, and diversity in Africans populations (not so much difference amongst non-African populations)
