Many genetic disorders are more prevalent in racial/ethnic groups,
for mostly undetermined reasons (though some may be due to
selective forces). It would stand to reason that modifier
loci/alleles would also show non-uniform distribution with
regard to ethnic groups, but I don't know of any examples
As always, the place to search is On-Line Mendelian Inheritance in Man.
For what you are trying to do, I _strongly_ encourage using the WWW
You'll probably have to muddle around a bit, but if there's data
on the subject it will be in there.
