Correction to: Self-reported race/ethnicity in the age of genomic research: its potential impact on understanding health disparities
Human Genomics volume 15, Article number: 35 (2021)
Correction to: Hum Genomics 9, 1 (2015)
Following the publication of the original article , an error for reference 69 citation was identified. Reference 69 (Salas A, Carracedo A, Richards M, Macaulay V. Charting the ancestry of African Americans. Am J Hum Genet. 2005;77(4):676–80) referred to a wrong article and was replaced by the following citation:
Kodaman N, Aldrich MC, Smith JR, et al. A small number of candidate gene SNPs reveal continental ancestry in African Americans. Ann Hum Genet. 2013;77(1):56-66.
Also, in the Conclusion section, the word “more” before "accurately" was missing and should be read as: Genetic ancestry can describe genetic relatedness more accurately than race and ethnicity.
The original article  has been corrected.
