    The contemporary population of the Middle East region has been built around intercontinental migration between Africa, Asia and Europe, being at the crossroads of these three continents. Despite the presence of a highly admixed group, genome data on these populations are limited and Arabs are one of the least studied population groups. This study characterised autosomal and lineage genome markers with the aim of shedding some light on the history of and relationships between the carious ethnic groups living in this region. The project specifically studied the distribution of short tandem repeats markers in subjects from the United Arab Emirates.
