Scientists explore use of genomic
research in coral reef protection

Genomic research, first pioneered in human health and medicine, is now being used to study the health of coral reef ecosystems and fisheries, providing new ways to protect and understand these important resources.

This was announced by scientists in a conference held recently in Silliman University in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, its press release said.

Dr. Mudjekeewis Santos of the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute said these advances were brought to the Philippines by the first Pan-Pacific Advanced Studies Institute on genomic applications to marine science in Southeast Asia that ended last week.
