In March 05, 2012, Ismail Maskromo – S3 student associated with PMB Lab took his second phase (oral) qualifying examination before his PhD (S3) committee members (Prof. Sudarsono [Chairman], Prof. Hengki Novarianto, Dr. Sukendah, and Dr. Dewi Sukma), two examiners (Dr. Sudrajad and Dr. Yudiwanti WEK), and an official of Plant Breeding and Biotechnology (PBT) Graduate Program (Dr. Darda Effendi). After more than two and a half hours of questioning, answering and verification sessions, Ismail Maskromo has eventually been declared satisfactory in answering the examiners inquiries.
By then, Ismail Maskromo’s status would be changed, from a regular PhD (S3) student into a PhD candidate. For his PhD research, Ismail Maskromo will conduct dissertation research entitle: “Toward Breeding and Molecular Analysis of Indonesian Kopyor Coconut – A Unique Coconut Mutant from Indonesia.”
All PMB Lab staffs and the associated students congratulate Ismail Maskromo for his success in becoming a doctoral candidate. We hope he also successful in completing his PhD research as soon as possible.
