STATE-OF-THE-ART GENE SEQUENCING FACILITY | A researcher at the Philippine Genome Center shows a micro tube containing DNA material of a sample being analyzed. Inset: A Next Generation Sequencing machine revolutionized genetic research because of its rapid and more data sequence results. The machine is among the many equipment acquired through DOST’s P100M grant for the establishment of the Philippine Genome Center (PGC), a multidisciplinary institution that conducts genomic researches for the improvement of crops and animal varieties, health diagnostics, and forensics, among others.  PGC is currently housed at UP Diliman’s National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology but will soon have its own building later this year. The visit to the PGC was held  during the Department of Science’s Agham na Ramdam media tour recently. Agham na Ramdam is a series of media briefings to showcase DOST’s program milestones and updates as part of government’s effort to address some of the country’s pressing problems today.
