=== Did I find interesting variants? ===
The region we selected contains ''APOL1'' gene, which is known to play an important role in kidney diseases such as nephrotic syndrome. One of the risk allele, <code>rs73885139</code> located at position <code>22:36661906</code> increases the risk of nephrotic syndrome by >
3-folds. Let's see if we found the interesting variant by looking at the VCF file by position.
