Genomic studies were conducted for genetic and varietal improvement of selected coconut varieties. Among the assembled genome and transcriptome sequences, two (2) varieties – Laguna Tall (LAGT) and Catigan Green Dwarf (CATD) are already deposited at the National Center for Biotechnology Center (NCBI). Several gene markers for high yield and quality copra-oil and by-products, and insect resistance were developed and are being optimized. The team also developed a local coconut genome database pre-installed with breeding bioinformatics tools. Furthermore, 8,842 seed nuts were harvested and 3,586 seedlings from the outstanding coconut populations were distributed to coconut farmers in Region IV-A.
