On Oct 20, 2016 we joined the conference on Biodiversity & Chemical Biology of Marine and Terrestrial Life in the Philippine Region. There we hosted a booth and a workshop on our next-generation sequencing capacity.
On Oct 13, 2016, our staff visited the Philippine Carabao Center to talk about the genomics capabilities of PGC. We had gracious hosts who discussed many opportunities for collaboration. We hope to visit again soon!

Last week, March 3 to 7, DSCF and CFB facilitated a workshop for PCAARRD and PCIEERD researchers and staff on genomics and bioinformatics. The 5-day boot camp included lectures, hands-on laboratory experiments, and computer work which aimed to familiarize the participants with the latest developments in the field of genomics and bioinformatics, to update them regarding current research projects, and to demonstrate the capabilities of the Philippine Genome Center Core Facilities.
From November 16 to December 21, 2013, DSCF research assistants David Gonzales and Gabriel Villamil were at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center (MCIC) of the Ohio State University in Wooster, Ohio, for bioinformatics training under Dr. Asela Wijeratne, research scientist and head of genomics at the MCIC.
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) DNA Sequencing Core Facility (DSCF) has found a temporary home on the second floor of the National Institute of Molecular Biology in UP Diliman, but is already opening its doors to research projects that will directly impact the nation’s economy.
