The Strategic Planning with the PGC Agriculture team was facilitated by PGC’s newly appointed Deputy Executive Director, Dr. Raul Destura. The activity was initiated by the PGC main office in order to weave the 6-year sustainability plan of the entire PGC.

Recently, the PGC received research grants from DOST to establish satellite facilities and increase collaborations with genomics researchers in Visayas and Mindanao regions.

PGC is a multidisciplinary research unit under UP’s Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA).
