One of the sessions scheduled during the monthlong PCC 25th anniversary celebration was the Pre-In-House Review conducted last March 21 and 22.
The review focused on the evaluation of the on-going and completed research activities as to their merits, limitations and opportunities for improvement. It also served as venue for sharing PCC’s research results to the scientific community.
Five thematic areas categorized the papers that were presented during the pre-in-house review: socio-economic dimensions of carabao development program implementation, genetic improvement (animal genomics/genetic diversity and cryopreservation/reproductive and cryopreservation technique), product development, biosafety, and production management system. Eight of these researches were completed and 32 are in progress.
Based on the results of the internal evaluation, select papers will be presented again during the R4D in-house review in June or July this year.
Presenters were from the PCC National Headquarters, Central Luzon State University (CLSU), PCC at Ubay Stock Farm (USF), PCC at Central Mindanao University, and PCC at University of Southern Mindanao (USM).
