Imperative the genomics community recognizes the need for and advantages of embracing diversity in our research efforts. There are no more excuses. #diversitymatters
Excited to see our timely work out today in . We show how important it is to include diverse participants in large-scale genomic studies and outline best practices for multi-ethnic analyses.
New : Genetic analysis of diverse populations improves discovery for complex traits. The PAGE study analyzes genetic architecture of disease in diverse populations, and shows scientific value of including diverse participants in genomics studies.

Why genetic studies of diverse populations improve the discovery of traits for common complex diseases: An elegant quantitative analysis. Via .
Figure 3 in looks like a slam dunk on why we should be genotyping individuals across diverse populations. Such a great paper.

congrats on this fantastic paper. more attention needed on diverse populations!
Diversity improves discovery. Great work from ⁦⁩ tackling the bias in genomics research.
Fav paper of the week: great work by and team shows how genetic studies of diverse populations can help reduce health disparities, identify new genetic risk loci, and narrow down known associations to likely causal variants.
We've known that the diversity of people is essential to genomic discovery. But now (finally) that's getting quantified by and a large, diverse group of talented geneticists :-)
This is such an incredibly cool an important paper - the importance and power of studying genetic disease in diverse populations. - I'm blown away just by how different this PCA looks compared to what I'm used to when reading genome papers

"the lack of representation of diverse populations in genetic research will result in inequitable access to precision medicine for those with the highest burden of disease"
Thanks Eric! Hopefully we can get this message across to everyone #embracediversity. PS This was 5+ years in the making. Tour de force led by and many, many in Link to the paper
Genetic analyses of diverse populations improves discovery for complex traits. At #HNL, we are working to address this and to broaden the base of data available for such studies. Via ⁦

#icdabio2019 Andrés Moreno-Estrada: need to increase diversity of populations in genetic studies, highlighted in PAGE study . For complex trait discovery as well as evolution studies. Great contributions from Mexican biobank & South Amer population studies.
PRESS RELEASE: Second release of the week! This time featuring a study highlighting the need for diversity in genomic research 🧬
