This edition of the PAHGC 2018 conference will focus on cutting edge topics pertaining to human genetics, specifically, the use of Big Data, personalized medicine and its relevance in the Arab World, and the latest trends in human genetics, including metabolomics and the human microbiome. International and regional experts will take to the platform to deliver their lectures on these topics.
The organizer of PAHGC 2018 is Centre for Arab Genomic Studies (CAGS) which was established to characterize and prevent genetic disorders and transfigure the future practice of health care in the region. Some of the priority objectives of the Centre for Arab Genomic Studies are to educate the public and professionals alike on the important impact of genetic diseases in the Arab World and the methods and benefits of early genetic diagnosis. The Centre for Arab Genomic Studies also plans to provide comprehensive genetic services by translating research achievements into well-integrated patient treatment programs. Concurrently, it will also address the ethical, legal, and social issues that may arise with the implementation of such programs.
