New study reveals major racial bias in leading genomics databases

(University of Maryland School of Medicine) Researchers have confirmed for the first time that two of the top genomic databases, which are in wide use today by clinical geneticists, reflect a measurable bias toward genetic data based on European ancestry over that of African ancestry. The results of their study was published in the latest issue of Nature Communications.
