BLOOD GROUPS IN IRAN
The above investigation represents one of Ihe few studies carried out in the field of population genetics in Iran. The differences in all three groups of sIudies which have been carried ouI by Blood Transfusion Centres of the Imperial Army, Red Lion and Sun and Teheran University, inspired us to carry out further investigations on ABO blood grouping and Rh typing in order to obtain the result on table 5. These statistics may not be an absolute pattern for genetic markers in Iran's different population, but it certainly gives an indication that such differences exist. Since the study of genetics in any population is assisted by genetic markers of different components of the blood, it is hoped that this data will serve to stimulate other investigations involving larger studies in this important field.
