This news item is about: Dr. Douglas Antczak has returned from a recent trip to Qatar, where he gathered samples for his genomics research on the Arabian horse, dromedary camel, and Arabian oryx (pictured). Dr. Antczak has an outstanding history of research in the biology of the horse, which are racing animals and beasts burden in most parts of the world, but on the other side of the planet, in Qatar, camels also step in to run the track and carry heavy loads. The Dromedary camel, together with the Arabian horse and the Arabian oryx, represent three iconic mammals of the Arabian Peninsula, and with support from the Qatar National Research Foundation, Dr. Antczak’s lab is sequencing and exploring the genomes of these three species.
