Abstract

Research on the human microbiome is beginning to address factors associated with between-group differences. Recognition of the social and political nature of traditional race and ethnicity categories will allow microbiome research to contribute to reduction of health disparities while avoiding attribution of causal inference to specific race and ethnicity categories.
