susceptibilidad genética

Oh - now I get it.

English to Spanish, and loci is plural for: locus = a place on a chromosone.

So it is a genetic susceptibility.

In biology and evolutionary computation, a locus (plural loci) is a fixed position on a chromosome

"La susceptibilidad en las fases tempranas de la infección está controlada por el locus BCG, ubicado en el cromosoma 1 murino,"
