1a from USA.  Southern California.  Although, back in the late 90s a different lab listed 1b.  So maybe both, or lab error, who knows.

Yes that`s right Scout, and this forum reflects that.

Here`s an interesting map I found showing the world-wide distribution of genotypes -

I`m from England - (was) genotype 3a

On my last visit to the doctor we discussed the regional significance of genotype and the area we live in the world. For example North America is a lot of genotype 1, etc. So where are you from what is your genotype?

 

I'm in the US and have genotype 1 A.
