We recently published a paper highlighting a major oversight with regard to sex bias in the maps used pervasively in biology and medicine. These maps are used by essentially everyone in biology and medicine. The maps come in the form of big databases that tell us how the basic elements of biology (e.g. genes, proteins, etc) are *thought to be* connected together. Yet, our article clarifies that these maps have failed to incorporate sex into their curation so there is no easy way to know if the maps in these databases are hiding sex-based differences in biology!
To help briefly explain this challenge, my 11 yo daughter and I made a fun(ny) 1 minute video! Check it out here !!
