Pakistani scientists succeed in mapping genome

Pakistani scientists have mapped genome of the first Pakistani, while with this historical achievement, Pakistan joins the ranks of the few countries – the US, UK, China, Japan and India – which have successfully sequenced the human genome.

The PCMD, working under the umbrella ICCBS, had reported mapping of the entire genome of a Pakistani male in just 10 months. The individual who has been genetically mapped is a resident of Karachi.
