Informal gathering of forest geneticists at IPB Bogor

A short meeting at IPB Bogor

On 28 August 2011 as scheduled Prof. Ko Harada (Ehime University, JP) accompanied by his Indonesian PhD student, Ms. Henti Hendalastuti, visited our campus and had a chance to meet also Prof. R. Finkeldey (Goettingen University, DE) and his Indonesian PhD student (Ms. Essy Hasnelly) who were also our resource persons for Block Lecture on Forest Genomics hel at IPB. The meeting was preceeded with a lunch and then followed by informal discussion on dipterocarp research. After the meeting, we visited International Collaboration Office IPB (ICO IPB) to meet Dean Faculty of Forestry and Head of International Office IPB. Personally, I was very happy that both professors could manage to come and met at IPB Bogor.
