Dr. Ir. Rubiyo, MS. – the head of Balai Penelitian Tanaman Industri (Balitri)” was invited to Surti Kurniasih’s PhD open exam as external examiner. Rubiyo was a PhD. alumnus of PMB Lab who graduated in 2010.

Rubiyo has just been appointed as the head of “Balai Penelitian Tanaman Industri (Balittri)” last January 2012 and has been very busy with his new responsibilities at Balittri ever since. An invitation to be an external examiner for PhD (S3) candidate from IPB could be a short break for him.

Rubiyo’s PhD dissertation research was about breeding to improve resistance of cacao against black pod disease. He evaluated the resistance of cacao germplasm collections against black pod, made some half-dialele crosses among five cacao clones, evaluated the resistance of the F1 arrays and determine the heritability of black pod resistance in cacao.

He has published a number of scientific papers based on results of his dissertation research. He will be expected to publish two more results of his dissertation in the near future.

All PMB Lab staffs and associated graduate students appreciated Rubiyo’s willingness to take part as external examiner for a Final (Open) PhD (S3) examination of a PhD candidate associated with PMB Lab. We hope that he will make positive contribution to Balittri in the future.
