Iranome: Iranian Genomic Variations

The human genome is highly variable and each individual’s genome contains approximately 3.5 million Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and 1000 large (>500 bp) Copy Number Variations (CNVs).

Today, large scale projects such as the 1000 Genomes and the International HapMap projects have been implemented on large scale samples from different populations such as Europeans, Americans, East Asians, and sub-Saharan Africans to increase our understanding of the contribution of genomic variations to human diseases. … more
