January 14, 2021 Approaching Indigenous Communities on Their Own Terms in Microbiome Research by Matthew Anderson, Ohio State University.? Hosted by ISCB

Principles of individual consent and sample deidentification stand as pillars of modern biomedical research but are flawed with respect to certain populations. Indigenous peoples have historically been targeted by unethical practices that continue into the present even when following best practices for conducting research with human subjects. This has led some studies in American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI/AN) populations to included additional safeguards that are reinforced through these communities’ unique legal status as domestic dependent nations. Yet, use of microbiome datasets generally lacks restriction on data sharing and other protections because of their perceived inability to significantly impact public health or individual welfare despite over a decade of work demonstrating the importance of microbial population in human development, metabolism, and immunopathologies. Additionally, raw datasets can contain large proportions of human-derived reads that include information on the host and not just microbes. Current projects in partnerships with the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe serve as new models of community partnerships to address issues of sovereignty in human and non-human datasets.

ISCB Writes Nature Communications Urging the Correction/Retraction of Recent Article on Mentoring

The Executive Committee and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) recently sent a letter to the Editor in Chief of Nature Communications regarding a recently published article in that journal and? urging the publisher to (i) retract the paper or (ii) make authors mend all methodological flaws, cite and contextualize their work with respect to pertinent literature, and consider and discuss possible explanations for their observed findings.

The article, “The association between early career informal mentorship in academic collaborations and junior author performance," by Alshebi et al, studies mentorship in scientific collaboration.? After scientific review of the article and the related supporting material, the ISCB Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee found the outcomes of the article to be discriminatory with untenable recommendations that could have far-reaching consequences.? The letter sent by ISCB to the publisher furthers details that the data the authors analyze do not to support their claims, findings and recommendations.

ISCB acknowledges, respects, and promotes the value of a diverse community as core to our international organization and culture. As an organization, we cannot stand by and allow such information to be published that could hurt our science.? We stand for an inclusive spirit of our community that we regard as one of the foundations of successful science in a globalized world.

Nature Communications's investigation into the paper, “The association between early career informal mentorship in academic collaborations and junior author performance," by Alshebi et al, has concluded.?? The authors have retracted this paper. You can find more information in our editorial (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-20618-x) and in the retraction note (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-20617-y).

Call for Tutorial Proposals
Deadline: December 14, 2020

The purpose of the Tutorials program is to build knowledge and provide hands-on training in "cutting-edge" topics relevant to the bioinformatics field and the COSI communities. Tutorials offer participants an opportunity to get an introduction to important established topics in bioinformatics, to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, or to develop advanced skills in areas about which they are already knowledgeable. Tutorials may also serve to bring together people and COSI communities with common interests to discuss, debate and problem-solve defined topics.

December 10, 2020 at 11:00 AM EST,? “Open Access” Data and the Continued Bio-Exploitation of Indigenous Genomes by Krystal Tsosie, Vanderbilt University.? Hosted by ISCB

While the field of genomics has certainly advanced technologically in the past 20 years, what (if anything) has actually changed in how scientists engage Indigenous people?

Global Indigenous groups expressed concerns about the biocommercial exploitation of Indigenous-derived genomic data at the start of large-scale diversity projects such as the Human Genome Diversity Project, Genographic Project, and 1000 Genomes. Open accessibility of these data were meant to “democratize” the field of genomics to advance technology and bridge health inequities—but for whom? Health benefits have yet to arrive to those Indigenous communities from whom DNA was questionably procured, yet companies continue to build intellectual property from openly sourced Indigenous genomes.

Presentation will highlight individual versus group consent issues and the myth of de-identification of DNA for small, underrepresented groups in genomics. In addition, Indigenous genomic data sovereignty and the importance of Indigenous-led biological and data repositories (or ‘biobanks’) will be discussed as means of centering Indigenous forms of data governance.
