The quiz contest covered all possible topics in genetics, from molecular genetics to population genetics. UP Baguio bested 13 other schools in this year’s competition, an annual event organized by the UPLB Genetics Society. UP Diliman topped this year’s NIGQC, followed by ADMU and DLSU in second and third places, respectively.
This is the third time UP Baguio participated in NIGQC, the first in 1998 when UP Baguio was awarded Champion, the next in 2000 when UPB ranked second to UP Manila. This only proves that UP Baguio’s Biology curriculum gives good training in the field of Genetics and Cell Biology. (Enrico Jugadora)
