BY VIRTUE OF BEING THE PRODUCT OF THE GENETIC ADMIXTURE OF THREE ANCESTRAL ROOTS: Europeans, Africans, and Amerindians, the present-day Brazilian population displays very high levels of genomic diversity, which have important pharmacogenetic/-genomic (PGx) implications. Recognition of this fact has prompted the creation of the Brazilian Pharmacogenomics Network (Refargen), a nationwide consortium of research groups, with the mission to provide leadership in PGx research and education in Brazil… CONTINUE READING
