The Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST), Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and Adarna House, Inc. launched the nutrition big book, “Go!” on March 5, 2014 at McDonald's Greenbelt, Makati City.

“Go!” is the 34th book in the Bright Minds Read (BMR) kit of RMHC. The BMR Program is RMHC's partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) in support of the “Every-Child-a-Reader” Program.

The big book teaches children about the importance of good nutrition with focus on developing good eating habits. This includes eating the right kind and amount of food at the right time. As children develop skills in reading, creative and critical thinking, they will learn from the book the many sources of good quality energy-giving foods such as potatoes. They will also learn the importance of being physically active by engaging in sports.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Philippine Genome Center building last April 10 signaled the advancement  of genomics research and development in the country.

Established in 2009, the PGC is an ambitious joint project of the University of the Philippines (UP) and Department of Science and Technology (DOST) that aims to tap genomics—the study of an organism's complete set of DNA—to improve crops, conserve biodiversity, improve disease diagnostics, and aid in forensics, among others.

Dr. Carmencita Padilla, PGC’s executive director, said that this day is a significant beginning for her and all the people behind the PGC.  She recounted that back in 2009 only four people were involved in PGC.   “Now we have more than 60 research assistants and 20 project leaders,” she said.
