Description

By Reuters

Description:
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) GENERAL SUPERVISOR OF THE NATIONAL CENTRE FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY AT KACST, DR. ABDULLAH AL-AWAD, SAYING: "In the Arab region, there are a lot of genetic diseases that have not been studied. So what we hope for from this project is to identify, through decoding the genetic code, and get closely acquainted with mutations in certain genetic diseases that are prevalent in the Kingdom such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and many other diseases." DR. AL-AWAD SPEAKING TO REPORTER (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) DR. ABDULLAH AL-AWAD, SAYING: "Since the launch of the project in December 2013, we have deciphered the genetic code of more than 500 people so far and this is a strong achievement for a three month old project. We have also identified many genetic mutations that cause some diseases that we see spreading in Saudi society." DR AYMAN SULYMAN ENTERING HIS LABORATORY AT KING FAISAL SPECIALIST HOSPITAL IN RIYADH SIGN READING (Arabic and English): 'SAUDI HUMAN GENOME PROGRAM' (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) GENETIC CONSULTANT AND RESEARCH SCIENTIST, DR. AYMAN SULYMAN, SAYING: "Saudi Arabia is considered one of the major countries in the world for genetic diseases and the reason for this is endogamy. The latest statistics show marriage of relatives is 63 percent and this is a very large number, which has led to the increased prevalence of genetic diseases in Saudi Arabia."
