Genomics in the era of COVID-19: ethical implications for clinical practice and public health

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Genomic studies of patients with COVID-19, or exposed to it, are underway to delineate host factors associated with variability in susceptibility, infectivity, and disease severity. Here, we highlight the ethical implications—both potential benefits and harms—of genomics for clinical practice and public health in the era of COVID-19.
