"Sequence Variation" is sometimes designated as "polymorphism", indicating that it is "non-disease causing". According to the general definition in human genetics, a "polymorphism" has to reach an allelic frequency of 1%. In addition, when a sequence variation is found in one single individual, it is not possible to determine if it is "non-disease causing"
