Frequency of ABO blood groups and RH factor: a case study
A random case study was carried out from February, 2018 to January, 2019 to see the different frequencies of blood group among different people regardless the community and age group in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh of N.E. India including the students coming from different places of the two states for the INSPIRE Science Camp in Arunachal University of Studies organized in 1-5 February, 2018 sponsored by Department of Science & Technology (DST). A scientific procedure was followed for detecting the blood group accurately which includes the primary data of this study; on the other hand secondary data were collected by interview process of the people who already had a medical test for blood group. A total of 2410 data (individuals) were considered and in the study O blood group was found to be dominant (45.23%) and AB blood group was the least common one (7.05%). On the other hand in case of Rh factor, positive blood group was quite common (96.68%) and negative was found very rare (3.32%). These showed that the frequency of blood groups were different in from each other causing the biodiversity in gene level i.e. blood group polymorphism occurs as a case of natural selection.
