The intersection of race, ethnicity and genomics has recently been a focus of debate and concern. The key areas of debate are pharmacogenomics and, to a lesser extent, racial profiling in the criminal justice system.

We are interested in exploring the interconnections between race, ethnicity and nation and kinship, always bearing in mind that kinship, as a domain of human experience and a field of social study, has been reshaped by the genomic and biotechnological revolution.
