The Qatar Genome Programme (QGP) is an ambitious population-based project aiming to position Qatar among the pioneering countries in the implementation of precision medicine. The project is generating large databases combining whole genome sequencing and other omics data with the comprehensive phenotypic data collected at Qatar Biobank. The wealth of such data empowers researchers to make breakthrough discoveries as well as help policy makers to better plan for future health care directions in Qatar.
