One of her significant PhD dissertation research finding is her success in showing that the cacao germplasm collections were very diverse. In her PhD dissertation research, she established a number of SSR markers that segregate together with resistance response of cacao against Phytophthora palmivora infection using F1 populations. She also established allelic diversity of disease responsive gene in cacao.

PMB Lab staffs and associated graduate students congratulate Surti Kurniasih for successfully doing her PhD seminar. We hope that she will finish her PhD dissertation document writing soon and do her PhD examinations in due time.
