The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) conducted an introductory molecular biology workshop at the DOST-PCAARRD Innovation and Technology Center (DITC) in Los Baños, Laguna on March 3, 2017.
Three members of the DNA Sequencing and Bioinformatics Facility of the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) attended the recently concluded Winter Institute for Statistical Genetics (WISG) held at the New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, last January 22-24, 2017.
A workshop attended by PCHRD staff on basic molecular biology concepts and tools, genomes, and applications of genomics, introduction to DNA sequencing technologies, and introduction to Bioinformatics analysis for high-throughput sequencing data.
Bioinformatics can play an important role in infectious disease surveillance and research from epidemiological data processing with geographic and temporal visualization to comparing genome phylogenies and structural modelling of mutations. As a classical example, interest in new influenza outbreaks as well as regular surveillance of circulating seasonal strains produce a constant flow of influenza genome sequences that need to be analysed and interpreted for epidemiological and phenotypic features.
Introduction to Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) in UP Diliman has officially opened its Core Facility for Bioniformatics (CFB), with the capability to analyze biological data for local scientists and researchers.
A supercomputer donated by IBM last year for research and development of local scientists has been activated by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) officially opened on Monday, April 14, its Core Facility for Bioinformatics (CFB) to provide local scientists and researchers a suite of services for genome-scale data generation and analysis.
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) will launch its Core Facility for Bioinformatics to provide genomics researchers and scientists with resources, hardware and software needed for biotechnology research and development.
On April 14, 8AM the Philippine Genome Center will launch its Core Facility for Bioinformatics (CFB) at the National Institute of Physics, National Science Complex, UP Diliman campus.
