    "Baltic gene" - looking for specifics to research

    I came across research that an "LWb" gene has been attributed to identifying people of Baltic origin. I'm curious what exactly makes this gene "Baltic" and if I look at my raw genetic data what should I look for to see if this gene is in my DNA?

    Article with reference that I originally read:
    http://www.baltictimes.com/news/articles/4166/

    The research is titled "The LWb Blood Group as a Marker of Prehistoric Baltic Migrations and Admixture" by Raisa Denisova, however I have not been able to find a copy to read. I have requested a copy from the authors.

    Even though I think they said it seems to nearly unique to the Baltics, most people in the Baltic don't have it. So it means nothing if you don't have it but probably means something if you do.
