The Minority Action Plan (MAP) Portal is designed to serve as an entry portal for students interested in research careers in genome science and the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research. It is also designed to facilitate meaningful exchange between program coordinators and Principal Investigators (PI).

The MAP Portal is a valuable clearinghouse for Minority Action Plan and related programs, offers something for everyone and aims to catalyze the growing interest in genomic and related life science research for underrepresented minority communities.
