“Challenges to globalizing genetic predictions of disease risks”

Human genomes have been shaped by natural selection, population bottlenecks, and archaic admixture. These evolutionary processes contribute to hereditary differences in disease risk across populations. Here, I explore how disease risks have changed over time and address some of the challenges of applying precision medicine approaches to diverse global populations.
