DOST, UP to inaugurate cutting-edge analytical facility for…

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the University of the Philippines (UP) will inaugurate the Protein, Proteomics, and Metabolomics Facility (PPMF) as an addition to the existing genomic research capacities of the UP Philippine Genome Center (PGC) this October 4, 2021. Initiated in 2018, the DOST provided a total of 175 million pesos of funding support for the provision of globally recognized tools and equipment units needed for the establishment of the PPMF. According to DOST Undersecretary for R&D Dr. Rowena Cristina Guevara, the PPMF is envisioned “as a platform for collaborative work on proteomics and metabolomics research and a training hub for those who are conducting OMICS-type researches”. With UP’s support on infrastructure development and DOST’s support in the acquisition of several laboratory equipment, the new facility is poised to serve R&D institutions both in the government and in the private sector in the coming months. Some of the laboratory equipment available at the PPMF include an Ultra High Pressure Liquid Chromatography System and a High-Resolution Mass Spectrometer, which are used in the purification, quantification and identification ...
