INTERDISCIPLINARY ANTROPOLIC EPIDEMIOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR-GENETIC RESEARCH OF ROMA IN CROATIA

ROMA POPULATION AS A RESEARCH MODEL

The main objective of this project is to investigate the variations in ADME genes in the Croatian Roma population in order to determine the impact of multiple founder effects, as well as isolation and endogamy on this very important gene group. Both publicly available data on the Roma population and the data obtained in our longstanding extensive molecular-genetic and epidemiological studies of the Roma population point to a specific demographic history, frequent endogamy and a high level of isolation in the Roma population, which make the selected sample an informative model for this type of research.
