    Population genomics has revolutionized various disciplines of biology including population, evolutionary, ecological and conservation genetics, plant and animal breeding, human health, genetic medicine, and pharmacology by allowing to address novel and long-standing intractable questions with unprecedented power and accuracy. Two profoundly important demographic changes are shaping the appearance and the character of nation. One change is the aging of the traditional US population.

RISK ASSESSMENT. The most immediate translational application of genome science to improve public health is likely to come in population screening for rare, genetically determined diseases that can be prevented or mitigated with timely intervention.6 A promising example case is Lynch syndrome, in which a mutation in a single gene confers a greater than 80% risk of colon cancer, and for which.

The purposeful inclusion and targeted enrollment of minority populations in the All of Us program is an attempt to address the many racial or ethnic disparities in health and disease outcomes. Despite bearing a disproportionate burden of disease, racial and ethnic minorities in the United States are often underrepresented in research studies.

Health Disparities. The Institute of Medicine defines health care disparities among population groups as the difference in treatment or access not justified by the differences in health status or preferences of the groups. Disparities in health outcomes for minority groups defined by race and/or ethnicity are an enduring challenge within the health care system.

The emphasis on genetic explanations for population differences in health has also led to controversial instances of “gene hunting” by multinational institutions.
