The head of healthcare firm Philab, Tom Navasero expressed his support to President Rodrigo Duterte’s all out war on illegal drugs, as this promotes the health and wellness of Filipinos.

“Genomics as you know is the holy grail of medicine, what we need to do first is sequence every human and there are a lot of humans out there to be sequenced,” he said.
“So we’re building a factory and we hope the Philippines can be the genomic hub. And it that action, a BPO in our sense is like a factory of sequencing human genomes as effective and efficient as possible,” he added.
