Abstract: We discuss the current state of genomic medicine in Arab countries of the Middle East, a region with outsized contribution to Mendelian genetics due to inbreeding yet has poor representation in global variome datasets. We focus on genomic testing, clinical genetics, and genetic counseling services along with associated training and research programs. Finally, we highlight opportunities for improvement in genomic medicine services in this region.
