About PGP

The Genome Program is a large-scale genomics project that aims to generate deep insights that are relevant for the Emirati population. It also aims to be the first program to provide individuals with their own unique reference genome as a baseline which enables UAE citizens to manage their health and wellness. The project utilizes advanced sequencing technology, with the goal of generating the highest quality and most comprehensive genome data for the population, and leverage one of world’s top supercomputers, Group 42’s Artemis, located in Abu Dhabi, to analyze the massive amount of data to generate new biological insights.

The objective of the program is provide Emirati individuals with their own high quality genome as a baseline and incorporate genomic data into healthcare management to establish Abu Dhabi as an omics-driven research and innovation hub.
