Brandy, this mutation would not be related to your daughter's problems. The
word mutation simply means a change. This particular change is in a section
that is sometimes called "junk" DNA, because it doesn't code for anything.
Some people might have 39 for DSX10011, others might have 40, others might
have 41 etc. etc., and you wouldn't be able to detect any differences in the
health or traits of the people.
