To the defense of the IT group I must say that this is of course more
than just updating rows in a table.
Note that the structure needs to be completely re-organized when
micro-alleles are considered and that there are still some markers that
are not clearly defined in nomenclature with the current NIST standards.

This is of course no excuse to delay this change forever. I try to push
this as good as I can.
