It would be nice if all the APOE genosets linked back to the APOE page - should I make a category for it? how do i know if a category already exists? or should I just pop in a useful phrase like "Variations in ApoE affect cholesterol metabolism. Refer to the entry for APOE for more information and related genosets." --

They link to Alzheimer's disease so I'm not sure what that adds. There is already APOE2 VARIANT with single SNP in medical conditions, which has been introduced through ClinVar though. There are several, single-occurrence APOE-related phenotypes in ClinVar [[1]] so perhaps it should be just APOE VARIANT with redirects from the related ClinVar phenotypes. Since "APOE VARIANT" isn't necessarily a medical condition (in which case it could link directly to Alzheimer's disease or Cholesterol etc.) so there is some semantic wrangling involved. Perhaps make it into a topic instead, thoughts? --Donwulff (talk) 11:16, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I see no harm in linking to any or all of them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Be_bold --- cariaso 12:25, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
