All cells in our bodies encode the same genetic information yet different sets of genes are expressed in a given cell type to give it its particular identity. My laboratory studies how transcription factors (TFs) recognize genomic DNA to regulate when, where and to which level genes are expressed to direct cell fate decisions. We use structural modelling and quantitative biochemical assays to study TF dimerization on composite binding elements enriched in regulatory DNA sequences.
With the opening of the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) in 2012, basic and applied research for health diagnostics, therapeutics, DNA forensics and drug discovery has started to gain momentum in the country.
New York University dean for science Michael Purugganan talks about mapping genes and genomes and shares insights about evolution and how it helps us understand the world.

MANILA, Philippines – A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Thursday, April 10, at the University of the Philippines Diliman in Quezon City for the Philippine Genome Center (PGC), a research unit of the institution which will see its own building rise by next year.
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) of the University of the Philippines (UP) officially opened its Core Facility for Bioinformatics (CFB) last 14 April 2014. The event was highlighted with the ground-breaking ceremony for the new PGC building at UP Diliman and a scientific symposium.
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.
The University of the Philippines will hold the groundbreaking ceremony of the Philippine Genome Center building. The event will be led by the UP President Alfredo E. Pascual joined by the Honorable DOST Secretary Mario G. Montejo.
