Such as the Third Arab Conference for Science Genetics, which will be held next month in Dubai, Dr. Ghazi Omar destruction Assistant Centre for Arab Genomic Studies Director of the importance of studying genetic disorders in the Arab citizens on the level of DNA, saying that this will help to develop new treatments. It came in the context of talking about the increase in genetic research in the world over the past 5-6 years, which gave an idea of ​​the genetic factors underlying diseases such as cancer and cases of unsatisfactory like diabetes and high blood pressure. The world of genes that more than 940 volatile genetically identified when Arab citizens so far; however, the 280 troubled genetically them still are not to know it, but the clinical level; explaining that genomic research is studying a lot of genes together compared with the genetic research that focuses on a single gene.

Abizaid said that the study of these disorders can contribute to a better understanding of the processes controlling the function of human genes and help provide diagnostic services to the communities and families affected, and said that these studies also help to reduce the spread of the symptoms of these disorders and the challenge and perhaps a new therapeutic approach depends on the backgrounds appear Genetic infected individuals.

But with the spread of these new models in research all over the world, has become an urgent need for the development of legal rules regulate the conduct of such research, and this issue will be addressed at the conference.

And despite the fact that this research does not take place in the United Arab Emirates at the present time, but due to technological progress has become conduct such research available sooner or later; for this reason, we need guidelines that will regulate this type of research in this the country.

Added Dr. -oho of the Scientific Committee Member of Matmr- saying: "The investment in technology needed to conduct this research to Sete Balah, has been invested in all parts of the world.

Dr. Mahmoud Talib Al Ali, Director of the Centre for Arab Genomic Studies, said that the conference will discuss the research in advance of the World Health Organization Regional Office in Cairo deals with the laws governing the application of the Human Genome Research at the global level.

He also said that the advanced research in the field of genetic studies are now seeking to discover the genetic causes of many chronic diseases and complex, such as cancer, high blood pressure usually resulting from a defect in a human DNA or genes in more than one gene of them.  By:
