Help reading SNPs

I am very new to this. All these snips make no sense to me. Is there a way of simplifying the results so I know what I’m actually look at/for?

If you see a SNP and you want to know more, a great place to get started would be to check out ‘snpedia’ (you can find it by web search). From there you can search for more detalils on any particular SNP by SNP # such as rs123456 or whatever…

I, too, wish there was some sort of “SNPs for Dummies.” I find myself thinking back to high school, when I was never a good science student. Even the “simplified” explanations are so confusing to me. I wish there were an app that made this clearer and more intuitive.
