Here we present the Arab Genetic Disease Database (AGDDB), a curated catalog of genetic disorders found in Arab populations. The first release of the database is populated primarily with information from the textbook Genetic Disorders Among Arab Populations [Teebi and Farag, 1997]. AGDDB is composed of data elements revolving around disorder reports. Other reports cover clinical, genomic, reference, and population frequency elements and their important attributes. The Arab Genetic Disease… Expand
DALIA- a comprehensive resource of Disease Alleles in Arab population.
TLDR
DALIA, a comprehensive compendium of genetic variants reported in literature and implicated in genetic diseases reported from the Arab population, aims to act as an effective resource for population-scale and sub-population specific variant analyses, enabling a ready reference aiding clinical interpretation of genetic variant, genetic epidemiology, and facilitating rapid screening and a quick reference for evaluating evidence on genetic diseases.

Hellenic National Mutation Database: a prototype database for mutations leading to inherited disorders in the Hellenic population
TLDR
The construction of the Hellenic National Mutation database is reported, a prototype database derived from a multicenter academic initiative, aiming to provide high quality and up‐to‐date information on the underlying genetic heterogeneity of inherited disorders found in theHellenic population. Expand
Documentation of inherited disorders and mutation frequencies in the different religious communities in Israel in the Israeli National Genetic Database
TLDR
The construction of the Israeli National Genetic database is reported, containing summaries of 347 genetic disorders studied for the Israeli populations with numerous relevant references and links to the respective Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man entries. Expand
The Cypriot and Iranian National Mutation Frequency Databases
TLDR
The construction of the Cypriot and Iranian National Mutation Frequency Databases is reported, both derived from an academic effort to provide high quality and up‐to‐date information on the underlying genetic heterogeneity of inherited disorders in the Cy Cyprus and Iranian populations, respectively. Expand
Near East University Genetic Mutation Database (NEU-GD): The first mutation database of Northern Cyprus.
TLDR
The construction of the first genetic mutation database for the people belonging to different ethnic groups living in North Cyprus is reported, which will allow scientists to generate extraordinarily useful information such as allelic variations among population, and description of the genetic blueprint of mutations occurring in human beings. Expand
National and ethnic mutation databases: recording populations' genography
TLDR
A hypothetical content for the ideal NEMDB is derived, which is currently being incorporated in an upgraded version of the ETHNOS NemDB development and curation software, as well as a community structure that would enhance the chances of mutation frequency capture and documentation in human populations. Expand
The first Malay database toward the ethnic-specific target molecular variation
TLDR
This database would be useful for clinicians and researchers who are interested in doing a study on genomics population and genetic diseases in order to obtain up-to-date and accurate information regarding the population-specific variations and also useful for those in countries with similar ethnic background. Expand
Molecular genetic analysis of inherited kidney disease in Saudi Arabia
TLDR
In the consanguineous Saudi population, a variety of genetic approaches are utilized to identify and characterize novel genetic variants causing inherited renal disease. Expand
Molecular characterization of Egyptian patients with glycogen storage disease type IIIa
TLDR
The results indicate the allelic heterogeneity of the AGL mutation in Egypt, the first report of AGL mutations in the Egyptian population. Expand
The challenge of documenting mutation across the genome: The human genome variation society approach
TLDR
Through their interactions, a number of members of the Human Genome Variation Society have developed nomenclature, standard software to curate mutations in gene specific databases, a WayStation to collect and review new mutations from research and diagnostic laboratories, and central databases to store and display these mutations and their associated phenotypes.

Autosomal recessive disorders among Arabs: an overview from Kuwait.
  • A. Teebi
  • Geography, Medicine
  • Journal of medical genetics

TLDR
An overview of autosomal recessive disorders among the Arabs in Kuwait from a personal perspective and published studies is provided, and the need for genetic services in Arab countries with the goal of prevention and treatment of genetic disorders is highlighted. Expand
PAHdb: A locus‐specific knowledgebase
TLDR
PAHdb is an online relational locus‐specific “mutation database” for the human phenylalanine hydroxylase gene (symbol PAH) and its associated phenotypes and functions as a knowledgebase when combined with associated information. Expand
Cystic fibrosis in Lebanon: distribution of CFTR mutations among Arab communities
TLDR
A sample of 20 families living in Lebanon for several generations and who have at least one child with CF found a 50% rate of consanguineous marriage, independent of the community of origin, and two previously undescribed polymorphisms were also identified. Expand
Opitz G/BBB syndrome: clinical comparisons of families linked to Xp22 and 22q, and a review of the literature.
TLDR
While OS is heterogenous, significant clinical overlap is present between the two groups, and it is presently impossible to assign a specific phenotype to the X-linked or the autosomal dominant forms of OS. Expand
Carbonic anhydrase II (CA II) deficiency in Maghrebian patients: evidence for founder effect and genomic recombination at the CA II locus
TLDR
A founder effect to explain the common CA II deficiency allele in this population of Tunisian families is supported, with the relatively high recombination frequency suggests the presence of a hot spot for recombination or gene conversion at the CA II locus. Expand
Distribution of CFTR Mutations in Cystic Fibrosis Patients of Tunisian Origin: Identification of Two Novel Mutations
TLDR
Studying a sample of 39 CF patients of Tunisian origin and using a GC clamp DGGE assay to scan the CFTR gene suggests that, in this Mediterranean population, additional mutations may lie elsewhere in the promoter region or in introns not yet analyzed. Expand
Genetic referrals of Middle Eastern origin in a western city: inbreeding and disease profile.
TLDR
Within the Middle Eastern group, autosomal recessive disorders were more than twice as common in the inbred than in the non-inbred families, the pattern of which is consistent with previous observations. Expand
Recommendations for a nomenclature system for human gene mutations
TLDR
This document has been written in response to meetings on “Locus-specific Mutation Databases” held on March 24, 1996 in Heidelberg, Germany and “Mutation Dat databases” on October 29, 1996 and was approved during that October 27, 1997 meeting in Baltimore. Expand
Mental retardation, distinct craniofacial dysmorphism, and central nervous system malformation: confirmation of a syndrome.
TLDR
A child with severe mental retardation, a central nervous system malformation, signs of ectodermal dysplasia, and a distinct craniofacial dysmorphism is presented, confirming a previous report of a boy with the same MCA-MR syndrome and suggests X linked or autosomal dominant inheritance. Expand
