About Us

The Emirati Genome Program is a significant national project that aims to draw a comprehensive genetic map for UAE citizens to accelerate the development of advanced preventive and personalised healthcare solutions for the nation’s present and future generations. 

The program is one of the largest population genome initiatives in the world, and will contribute to the development of preventive and personalized healthcare solutions in collaboration with research and medical institutions across the UAE.

The program uses the latest genetic sequencing technologies and artificial intelligence to obtain high-quality genetic data that will enrich available medical data and enable large-scale scientific research and discovery.

Analyzing the complete genome of UAE citizens allows researchers, doctors, and scientists to identify the causes of genetic diseases and types of genetic mutations, anticipate susceptibility to some diseases and study them more deeply. The findings help develop effective treatment and preventive plans, and reduce genetic and chronic illnesses.
