Predictive Genomics is a powerful capability that can help predict disease risk and understand drug response to focus health care resources on improving outcomes and managing costs. Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, and Qatar Genome Program (QGP), a member of the Qatar Foundation (QF), have partnered to accelerate genomic research and clinical applications of predictive genomics in Qatar as a step toward expanding the benefits of precision medicine across Arab populations globally. The collaboration includes custom genotyping arrays designed to accelerate genomic research and clinical applications of predictive genomics across Arab populations.


With the recent announcement of the partnership between Thermo Fisher Scientific and Qatar Genome Program, join the upcoming back-to-back webinars to learn more about the advancements and breakthroughs in predictive genomics.

Explore how the different technologies can be integrated into strategies across various applications of predictive genomics research. In this webinar, Dr. Anu Mittal will provide an overview of the different technologies – Whole-genome sequencing (WGS), Low-pass sequencing (LPS), and AxiomTM Microarrays.


´╗┐Join this webinar on Monday, June 21, 2022, at 19:00 AST | 20:00 GST to discover the advantages and disadvantages of each technology, and when to use which technology in your research.

Qatar is among the pioneering countries in the region with Predictive Genomics and precision medicine at the heart of its health strategy. Qatar Genome Program (QGP) is a national program that has contributed so far to sequencing more than 28,000 whole genomes from the Qatar population and over 2,900 whole genomes from 19 other Arab countries collected by Qatar Biobank.


´╗┐Join Dr. Radja Messai-Badji on Monday, June 28, 2022, at 17:00 AST | 18:00 GST as she shares her experience within QGP and provides her opinion on the key elements necessary to build a state-of-the-art predictive genomics program.
