Roundtable discussion: “The Promise and Perils of Social and Behavioral Genomics” (Jan. 25)

Has social genomics fueled the rise of white supremacy in America? How has genetic evidence played a role in events such as the 2022 Buffalo mass shooting and extremist violence? How has the incomplete reckoning of the history of scientific racism and eugenics in genetics/genomics led to harmful ideologies and compromised scientific integrity? Now more than ever, scientists and scholars must understand these connections to safeguard human health and safety.
