Dr. Ivane R. Pedrosa Gerasmio, Visiting Assoc. Prof., from the Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology For Collaborative Works with MECOH
We are delighted to welcome Dr. Ivane R. Pedrosa Gerasmio as a valued collaborator from Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology. Her diverse range of projects showcases a deep commitment to scientific exploration, covering subjects such as crustacean identification in Panguil Bay, genetic diversity in horseshoe crabs, and reproductive biology of commercially important fish species in Illigan City.
We are thrilled to have her as our guest, as she stayed with us from the 16th of October to the 25th. During her visit, we at MECOH are glad to share our facilities to process several eDNA samples she brought from The Philippines. By working closely with her, we felt that we have made the most of each others' expertise in the name of advancing our shared scientific endeavors.
During her visit, Dr Ivane was productive. She is successful with size selection, products were amplified from the fish eDNA samples she had brought from Mindanao, and received bioinformatic analysis training throughout her stay in MECOH.
She was given guidance from Dr. Karen Judan Cruz and Dan Joseph Logronio on both molecular biology techniques and bioinformatic analysis.
"It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed."
