Title: The Genetic Basis & Evolutionary History of Skin Pigmentation Variation in African & African American Populations

Abstract: With increased access to diverse populations from Africa along with advances in computational methods, we are now able to explore new and long-standing questions regarding the genetic architecture and evolutionary history of variable phenotypes in humans. In the end, more inclusive research can lead to innovative discoveries translatable from the bench to the clinical bedside.
