Description

With the mapping of the human genome and development of the HapMap Project, inclusion of diverse populations in genomic research is essential. Historically, there has been a paucity of minorities in genetic research. This has been due to a variety of reasons. However, not all minorities share the same history in terms of inclusion in medical and genetic research and not all minorities are resistant to such research. Identifying reasons why diverse ethnic groups will or will not participate in genomic research will be of great value to the HapMap and other genomic studies. The current project is a case study examining reasons why Indian/Hindu Americans are willing to participate in genomic research.
