The DSCF and CFB teams attended the 39th Annual Philippine Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Convention last November 29-30, 2012 at Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte. Dr. Saloma gave a brief introduction and overview of the Philippine Genome Center, which drew a lot of interest from the audience. Both core facilities gave out flyers afterwards to give the scientific community a glimpse of what to expect once the core facilities are already fully operational.
