Hi, i'm heterozygous for rs2228479 (AG) and i do have red hair, my aunt is propably homozigous for this variant and she has very red hair, i think there's a strong correlation between this variant and red hair:

pictures of my hair:

As you can see she has very red hair, so why this variant is not considered among red variants in 23andme?

My aunt has also extremly fair skin and freckles all over her body and face.
I have a fair skin tone and some freckles on my body and face but not much (about 300 in winter time)

I'm also positive for this variant and have few red hair on my beard & 'stache.

I am GG for this gene, what does that mean

It means you are not a carrier of the gene, the risk allele is A.

I am GG for this gene, what does that meanNeed to be AA. http://www.researchgate.net/publication/263015244_Neanderthal_Origin_of_the_Haplotypes_Car rying_the_Functional_Variant_Val92Met_in_the_MC1R_ in_Modern_Humans Another thread for red hair. http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?3768-Red-Hair-Genotype-Data-%2823andMe-derived%29

My HirisPlex results:

Predicted phenotype
p-value AUC Loss
blue eye 0.002 0
intermediate eye 0.047 0
brown eye 0.951 0
blond hair 0.003 0.007
brown hair 0.235 0.002
red hair 0.685 0.027
black hair 0.077 0.002
light hair 0.296 0
dark hair 0.704 0

blue eyes: 0,2%
intermediate eyes: 4,7%
brown eyes: 95,1%
blond hair: 0,3%
brown hair: 23,5%
red hair: 68,5%
black hair: 7,7%
light hair: 29,6%
dark hair: 70,4%

Makes sense since i'm red haired and hazel eyed.

actually i've put wrong some snpa:

Predicted phenotype
p-value AUC Loss
blue eye 0.03 0
intermediate eye 0.254 0
brown eye 0.717 0
blond hair 0 0.007
brown hair 0 0.002
red hair 1 0.027
black hair 0 0.002
light hair 1 0
dark hair 0 0

these are the results of hirisplex

so 3% blue eye
25,4% intermediate eye
71,7% brown eye
blond hair: 0%
brown hair: 0%
red hair: 100%
black hair: 0%
light hair: 100%
dark hair: 0%

makes definitly more sense than the other results, as i have red hair and hazel (green-brown) eyes rather than brown.
