Sequenced genomes, 100,000 by Saudi Arabia

Sequenced genomes, The “Saudi Human Genome Programme” is to launch 10 centres to study the genome in Saudi Arabia. It hopes to sequence 100,000 genomes over the next five years, to try to identify both normal and disease-associated genes specific to the Saudi population, all with the ultimate aim of creating personalised medicine in Saudi Arabia (Nature Biotechnology 32; 11, 2014).
