The inauguration of the new Philippine Genome Center Visayas, which will pursue research for fisheries and aquatics, agriculture and medicine, is “UP Visayas at its best”, according to UPV Chancellor Camposano.

The UP Philippine Genome Center-Visayas Satellite Facility (PGC-VSF) has lent its reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) machine to the Western Visayas Medical Center (WVMC) to strengthen the hospital’s capability in testing patients for COVID-19.
