we propose to investigate the genomics of a Lebanese sample. we plan (1) genotyping (2.5M) of 120 Lebanese individuals, choosing this platform to allow comparison with the 1000 Genomes and African Genome Variation project populations, (2) 8x sequencing of 100 individuals to provide unbiased population-level sequence information including allele frequencies, and (3) 30x sequencing of four individuals to allow inferences such as from PSMC/MSMC to be obtained. The current form is for the low-coverage sequencing. This data is part of a pre-publication release.
