Qatar Genome

Qatar Genome Programme (QGP) is a population-based research project that aims to study the genetic makeup of the Qatari population with the aim of introducing precision medicine and personalized healthcare. Its large-scale genomic research, based on data collected by Qatar Biobank, has made Qatar one of the few countries in the world conducting research of this nature.
