He is not a translocation. He has a full set and plus material on C6.

I do NOT want him treated. I would not believe in such a thing even if it were
possible. He is definately not a viable mutation but he is happy and we will keep
him forever.

I want him to be recorded. Im interested in whether or not his differences will be
of any service to researching genomes. I would like to know if he is still unique
which is what I was told 20 years ago. Is there a central library collecting such
information? Or is there a particular site where C6p+ should be recorded.
