Bio-bank to serve dangerous jobs

TEHRAN, Aug. 01 (MNA) – In a bid to help people in dangerous or deteriorating jobs an Iranian research center provides bio-bank services.

The Head of Iran’s Nour Research Center on Genetics (NRCG) Mohammad Tavallayee told the reporters about the new plan to establish a bio-bank of workers with physically demanding occupations.

Mohammad Tavallayee told Mehr News correspondent that forming an electronic card containing the genetic information of laborers can eliminate the identification problems after accidents.

As the holders of physically demanding jobs are always under the threat of accidents, we think it is necessary to have the genetic information of the laborers, said Tavallayee.

Along with physically demanding jobs, the practitioners of dangerous jobs like reporters, air crew, and sailors are subject to the new scientific project.

Announcing his center’s readiness for execution of the project, Tavallayee invited the employers to financially support their staff to afford the costs of genetic tests.
