With the use of Next Generation DNA/RNA Sequencing equipment (NGS) available at the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) in the University of the Philippines Diliman Campus, the team of the DNA Sequencing Core Facility (DSCF) is ready and willing to assist RITM and the DOH in confirming suspected cases of 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the country.
On November 10, the research paper titled “Next Generation Sequencing-based Discovery of Novel Genetic Markers in the Vitamin D Receptor Gene correlated with Osteoporotic Fracture among Older Filipino Women” was presented by Mr. Mark Pretzel P. Zumaraga, RCh, MSc, Science Research Specialist II at the Nutritional Biochemistry Section of Food and Nutrition Research Institute, Department of Science and Technology. The paper was accepted for oral presentation at the AFES Investigator’s Award for the theme, Calcium and Vitamin D Metabolism at the 19th ASEAN Federation of Endocrine Societies (AFES) Congress was held in Yangon, Myanmar on November 9-12, 2017.
