research centre will carry out the first Arab Genome Project in the region, that will map genes in the Arab population and provide a platform for future medical practice.

The project will focus on explaining the spread of specific illnesses such as , heart diseases and cancers, said Dr Mahmoud Taleb Al Ali, Director of the Centre for Arab Genomic Studies (CAGS).

Experts at the centre have already conducted extensive clinical and molecular analysis for families which is expected to bring fresh insights to the human genome with particular reference to the Arab population, he said.

“The project will study genetic variability in the Arab world to screen for natural difference between humans,” explained Dr Ghazi Omar Tadmouri, Assistant Director for CAGS.
