NIH’s “All of Us” Research Program Releases First Genomic Dataset of Nearly 100,000 Whole Genome Sequences; Contributions from Diverse Participants Set to Change the Landscape of Genomics Research

On March 17, 2022, it was announced that nearly 100,000 highly diverse whole genome sequences are now available through the NIH’s All of Us Research Program. About 50% of the data is from individuals who identify with racial or ethnic groups that have historically been under-represented in research.
