In the study "Genetic mechanisms of critical illness in Covid-19", (free to download) the authors share their findings on which genomes seem to be associated with an increased likelihood of hospitalization when infected with COVID 19.
See Table 1 (page 9), to see that the Risk is represented by one letter. I'm not academically trained in genetics, so my only experience when reading these papers is that usually risks are associated with a base pair. Like "C/C', or "A/G".
Why is only one chemical/letter given? How does one interpret this?
*I'd like to mentioned that several genetic testing companies have the markers in this study mapped, so this could be useful information for patients and their physicians.
