DOST Secretary graces CSet Tissue Culture Laboratory inauguration

Written by Alissa Carol M. Ibarra, DOST-PCAARRD S&T Media Services

GUINOBATAN, Albay – The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña attended the inauguration of the newly-constructed state-of-the-art tissue culture laboratory at the Philippine Coconut Authority-Albay Research Center (PCA-ARC) recently.

Through the funding of the DOST-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD), a more spacious and fully-equipped culture room was constructed for better organization of tissue culture activities, and bigger growth room for the development of existing coconut tissue cultures. The existing screenhouse and humidity tent were also repaired for the ex-vitro establishment of tissue culture-derived regenerants.

CSet 1The construction of the Tissue Culture Laboratory Extension and repair of existing humidity tent and screenhouse were completed on March 28, 2018 through the funding of DOST-PCAARRD. 

CSet 2

The program, “Reinvigorating the Philippine Coconut Industry through the Coconut Somatic Embryogenesis Technology (CSet),” aims to mass propagate plumule-derived coconut planting materials for the establishment of new planting in coastal zones and replant typhoon-damaged, and CSI-infested palms. Currently, the PCA-ARC component project is able to produce and maintain 1,414 regenerants from the 11 coconut varieties collected from PCA – Zamboanga Research Center (PCA-ZRC).

DOST Secretary de la Peña acknowledged the accomplishments of the program and highlighted the results as a breakthrough in agriculture. Likewise, PCA Administrator Romulo J. de la Rosa emphasized that with the significant progress of the CSet program, PCA is at the cutting edge of the tissue culture research. He added that PCA is truly grateful to DOST, specifically to PCAARRD, for its continuous support on various coconut research efforts. DOST and PCA agreed to continue and strengthen its collaboration on proper utilization of results from existing researches on coconut and further identify R&D gaps.

Meanwhile, Fr. Salvador Nicolos R. Bilono III officiated the blessing of the CSet Tissue Culture Laboratory, as well as the Food Processing Facility of PCA-ARC.

Present for the unveiling of the marker were DOST Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña, PCA Administrator Romulo J. de la Rosa, PCAARRD Crops Research Division (CRD) Assistant Director Dr. Edna A. Anit, OIC Deputy Administrator for R&D Branch Ms. Erlene C. Manohar, Guinobatan, Albay Municipal Mayor Gemma Ann Y. Ongjoco, and PCA-ARC Department Manager and CSet Program Leader Dr. Cristeta A. Cueto.

The biodiversity of Lake Sebu, one of the most popular tourist attractions in South Cotabato, will be assessed in a Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Grants in Aid (GIA) funded project.

The DOST-GIA funded project titled, “Trophic status and aquatic biodiversity assessment for sustainable upland freshwater ecosystems in the municipality of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato” is the first Mindanao State University-General Santos (MSU-GSC) project of the DOST under the administration of President Duterte.

Representatives of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of DOST (DOST-PCAARRD) and DOST visited Lake Sebu in South Cotabato on August 8-10, 2018 alongside the inception meeting for the Lake Sebu Project of the MSU-GSC.

PCAARRD’s delegation included  Director Dr. Dalisay DG. Fernandez, Engr. Eduardo V. Manalili and Ms. Anna Mae S. Pastidio of the Inland Aquatic Resources Research Division (IARRD) of PCAARRD.

DOST was represented by its Special Projects Division Chief Ms. Armela K. Razo and staff member, Mr. Dexter LA. Bautista.

South Cotabato in Southern Mindanao is well-known for its Tuna Fish Port Complex in General Santos City and for Lake Sebu, a natural lake in the municipality of Lake Sebu, among other tourist attractions.

The Lake Sebu biodiversity project, which is under the leadership of Dr. James Namocatcat of MSU-GSC, is important in the protection and conservation of the area as a great tourist site.

The project aims to review existing local ordinances, comprehensive land use plans (CLUPs), master plans, etc. as guide in making policy directions, among other notable objectives.

Once completed, the project is expected to provide a biodiversity profile as well as bathymetry and river hydrology of the three upland ecosystems of Lake Sebu municipality, together with other outputs.

The team also visited the General Santos Fish Port Complex in the city. The fish port is a hub of fish catch from Sarangani Bay, Sulu Sea and as far as the Celebes Sea.  Most of the catch consists mainly of tuna, roundscad (galunggong), and other pelagic fishes.

A meeting was also held with Dr. Zenaida P. Hajji Raof-Laidan, DOST Region XII Director, at Punta Isla Resort in Lake Sebu. Dr. Raof-Laidan expressed enthusiasm in the Lake Sebu Biodiversity Project and wished that a similar project be implemented in Lake Lanao in the future.

The group then visited the two other lakes; Lake Siluton and Lake Lahit including the Seven Falls. The three lakes are invaluable source of tilapia and other freshwater fish catch for subsistence fishermen.

Fun this is what we all wanted to have. But fun is more fun if it is done with a purpose. Celebrate Halloween with a purpose with that 80s throwback pop feel with all the Michael Jackson performers, fans, and audience this coming October 26, at the Resorts World Manila in its New Port Plaza. 

Enjoy the electrifying fusion of acrobatics, dance, and visuals with Michael Jackson’s fanatic fans and impersonators like Master Jericho, the Bratboys, and the newly formed girl group called Girlfriends. See  the once the lovable kid on Eat Bulaga’s stage who have now become a lovable oppa behind the scene as the floor director of the longest running noon time show in the Philippines, Staeven Claude aka “Goyong”. Actor-singer Lance Raymundo would thrill the audience with his serenades.  And of course,   everyone’s favorite pop, dance, and soul singer, the blackbird of R & B, Mr. Luke Mejares who admittedly have been looking up to Michael Jackson’s fabulous songs and performances since he was a kid.

The show would be more fun because it is for the benefit of Cuts Against Cancer, a foundation that gathers untreated hairs and weave it into wigs for children and women who lost their crowning glory from the effect of chemotherapy. For those who would want to donate hair, Cuts Against Cancer collects untreated hair minimum of 12 inches or longer. Please be mindful that it should be untreated hair meaning hair is natural, not rebonded, keratin-treated or colored. Why treated hair is a no-no? Because treated hair easily breaks when weaved and the happiness of the kids who have been given another crowning glory would be cut short and would only add frustration to them in the end.

How to cut your hair to donate it? Before cutting your long hair, tie it together then cut above the ponytail, and put it in a ziplock. If you already have set aside untreated hair 12 inches or longer and thought of donating it and do not know where and how, this  October 26, Friday at the New Port Plaza of Resorts World Manila you have an opportunity to do so. A table at the Thriller in October, produced by Multi-Media Service Cooperative with the help of Resorts World Manila and Panasonic Philippines, awaits for those who wanted to drop their hair donation for Cuts Against Cancer.

Multi-Media Service Cooperative is the first entertainment media production service cooperative in the Philippines allowed under the laws of the Republic of the Philippines through Cooperative Development Authority to engage in producing of shows for events, radio, television, movie, theater, and web, and producing advertisements.

MMSC is a production company consisting of professional talents from media and entertainment. With professional experiences combined, they breathe to produce amazing concerts and events, timely radio shows, extensive television shows, noteworthy movies, significant theater production, wide-ranging web projects, and effective advertisements.

Aside from that they empower the creativity of the Filipino talents by facilitating different workshops with the industry’s icons for their members and non-members to create an atmosphere that enhances juices of creativity, to promote freedom to express selves appropriately and creatively.
