The Genomic Equity Series is a monthly online series hosted by the Diverse Data initiative at Genomics England, in collaboration with the Data Science for Health Equity community, which aims to share the latest experiences, projects and research of those working to improve equity in genomic medicine across the world.

About this month's event

We are delighted to have the Diverse Data team at Genomics England share their analysis on the diversity of the 100,000 Genomes Project. Thuy and Sam (Diverse Data's in-house bioinformatician and genomic data scientist) have spent the last year exploring how participants' ancestry and demographic factors might affect clinical outcomes in both cancer and rare diseases. They will use this session to talk through their results, and offer tips on how to leverage the dataset for population genetics.

Sam Tallman has a background in studying the genetics of under-represented populations. His main research interests are geared towards understanding the global structure of human genetic diversity, and how this can help us to learn about our collective history and improve healthcare outcomes for everyone. Thuy is a Bioinformatician at Genomics England.
