Scientific Questions Being Studied

The intersection of genetics and location is the source of skin cancer's widespread incidence. An obvious relationship between UV radiation exposure and complicated interactions with genetic predispositions and cultural norms is demonstrated in Australia. Comprehending these processes is essential for customized approaches to prevention and intervention. One of the most common health concerns, skin cancer is closely related to both genetics and geography.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

R and Python to analyze cohorts, Microsoft Excel to create graphs depicting the risk of developing skin cancer based on geographic location and hereditary factors.

Anticipated Findings

Geographic location where a person grows up may or may not affect one's risk of developing skin cancer, but hereditary factors such as genetics and inherited traits do.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.

Data Set Used
