Genomics and Cancer Disparities: The Justice and Power of Inclusion

Cancer Discov. 2021 Apr;11(4):805-809. doi: 10.1158/2159-8290.CD-21-0225.

ABSTRACT

Advances in genomic science have transformed our ability to interrogate cancer, revealing biases that drive disparities in minority populations. Cancer disparities research engages diverse ethnic group inclusion as a matter of rigor, to address underrepresentation in genomic data sources, and has led to groundbreaking work, enhancing our understanding of tumor biology.
