Sample Name: South-Central Moroccans
Sample UID: SA000292N
Sample Description:Population sample from Morocco (El Jadida, south Atlantic coast), (58 males and 43 females). The sample was collected on the basis of family history information consisting of people coming from the Abda, Chaouia, Doukkali, and Tadla districts in south-central Morocco. All of the subjects were Arab speakers, however it is likely that most of the people living in this region probably descended from the ancient Maghreb populations .
Number of Chromosomes: 202
