The presence of Non-Human DNA in Human DNA samples

July 13, 2022 - 2PM CET (KSA: 3PM – UAE: 4PM)

Buccal swab sample collection is a quick, easy, and non-invasive method to obtain DNA from individuals for genetic testing. Some samples demonstrate the presence of non-human DNA. We explored the source of this non-human DNA and whether it has an impact on the genetic diagnosis of the subjects.


During this Webinar, our Sr. Director Bioinformatics Research, Dr. Najim Ameziane, a molecular biologist with 15+ years of experience in molecular diagnostics of hereditary diseases, will help you understand the following:

Najim holds a PhD in human genetics with over 15 years of experience in molecular diagnostics of hereditary diseases and cancer. He pioneered the application of next-generation sequencing in the clinical genetics department of the VU Medical Center Amsterdam. He discovered novel gene-disease associations by utilizing cutting-edge technologies in the laboratory as well as bioinformatically. Najim is passionate about deciphering the human genome, which holds the code of life. He believes that comprehension of the human genome is key to personalised management of genetic disease and improved quality of life.
