Qatar Genome Project

The Qatar Genome Program (QGP) is an ambitious population-based project aiming to position Qatar among the pioneering countries in the implementation of precision medicine.

QGP uses a collection of samples and data from Qatar Biobank (QBB) participants to identify genotype-phenotype associations relevant to the Qatari population. QGP and QBB provide the basis for the development of personalized healthcare in Qatar.

Sidra Medicine supports QGP in various aspects including sequence production, data analysis and storage, and research activities.
