YOU ARE INVITED TO THE LAUNCHING OF THE SARS-COV-2 GENOMICS BIOSURVEILLANCE SERVICES IN PGC VISAYAS AND PGC MINDANAO
Themed, "Drawing on Collective Strengths for Pandemic Preparedness" --the expansion of the genomic biosurveillance capacity in Visayas and Mindanao was established to increase the number of weekly samples from around the archipelago for Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) and to address the logistical challenges of having the samples be transported from labs around the country to the genome center in Diliman.
This is made possible through the support of the Department of Health, Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development, University of the Philippines System, and the Philippine Genome Center together with its satellite facilities in Visayas and Mindanao, as well as funding support from the Department of Budget and Management.
