Justin M. Zook, Luke Hickey, Benedict Paten, Robert Sebra, Valerie Schneider
There is a pressing need to better represent ethnic diversity with genomic resources and to do so in a way that maximizes utility for people working with the Genome Reference Consortiums human reference genome. That was the theme of a panel discussion among the authors at the Precision Medicine Leaders Summit, held in San Diego in August 2017. The session, entitled Minority Report: Ethnic Diversity and the Real Promise for Precision Medicine, included discussion about better representing the human genome; addressing population bias in existing databases; evolving technology; data sharing; and achieving precision medicine for all individuals. Here, we summarize the key discussion points from the panel.
