      After controlling for confounders, first cousin Genetic disorders among Arab populations book remained significantly associated with an increased risk of congenital heart defects CHDwhere infants born to consanguineous parents had a higher risk of having a CHD diagnosed at birth compared to those born to unrelated parents in Lebanon [ 4849 ], Saudi Arabia [ 475051 ], Egypt [ 52 ], and Arabs in Israel [ 53 ]. Jordan's major exports include clothing, fertilizers, potash, phosphates, vegetables, and pharmaceuticals. Geographically, Jordan is almost entirely landlocked, with the port of Aqaba in the far south being its only outlet to the red sea. By Decemberthe database has finished its project with respect to the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Oman, and hopes to complete its coverage of genetic disorders in Qatar within a few more months. In Arab populations and Diasporas, the deep-rooted norm of consanguineous marriage has been widely accused of being an important factor contributing to the preponderance of autosomal recessive genetic disorders [ 354772 — 76 ].

      But MERS is not yet a pandemic, could become pervasive in genetic Genetic disorders among Arab populations book patient. Most studies among Arabs have indicated that postnatal mortality is higher among offspring of consanguineous parents than among non-related parents [ 44265 — 71 ]. Consanguineous marriages among Arabs are respected because it is thought that they promote family stability, simplify financial premarital negotiations, offer a greater compatibility between the spouses and other family members, offer a lesser risk of hidden financial and health issues, and maintain the family land possessions [ 32425 ]. Consanguinity and Reproductive Health Research on the association of consanguinity with the different parameters of reproductive health in Arab countries is limited, both in quantity and in quality. Migration of Semitic tribes throughout the region and interaction with traders from Far East along silk road and immigrants shunting in and out of the African continent [ 11 ] have contributed to the diversity in the region.

      However, experience from Iran and Saudi Arabia shows that many couples have chosen to marry despite a high risk of inherited genetic disease in their offspring. These variations will be compared with published findings. The data could potentially be used as a genome panel that will serve as a reference for future imputation studies. This conference was preceded by a one-day workshop on "Fundamental Approaches in Molecular Diagnosis of Hemoglobinopathies".

Despite being largely ignored to date, the rise of Next-Generation Sequencing technologies has provided an opportunity for smaller nations to join in the genome effort. Like the previous conference, a two-day pre-conference workshop on the Applications of FISH technology in Cytogenetyics was also held as part of the program of the conference.

Disorders that have increased tribal occurrences or are limited to large kindreds, as well as small geographic or religious isolates, are highlighted to facilitate their recognition, study, and management.

But MERS is not yet a pandemic, could become pervasive in genetic disease patient. The principle objective was to provide a comprehensive description of genetic variations in humans and their distribution throughout the genome and to make this data publically available.

Neutral or Positive Effects of Consanguinity on Reproductive Health Parallel to the huge body of literature detailing the negative effects of consanguinity on human health, there also exists a considerable amount of data that suggests that the practice of consanguinity is not the great evil that it is generally thought to be.
