A wild Syrian is Golden, with no Patterns, and the Coat is Short, Straight, and non-Satin. The genetics for this would be written as: A- B- baba C- Dg- dsds E- Hr- L- lglg P- Rd- Rx- sasa sgsg toto uu whwh. This is usually shortened to ++ to mean there are no mutations from the wild type. Since most Syrian hamsters have only a handful of genes to be considered, the majority of breeders simply list the genes that are definitely there.
