it's not a comment, but the idea is the same, though this plant is not endemic to Philippines. i like to seek help to sequence the plant's genome (Coix lacryma-jobi)  that like this parrot is dwindling in population as job's tears (the plant's english name), which is a highly valuable crop-for food and livelihood, is a neglected/underutilized species.  how do i do that? with much thanks
