Nguyễn, Văn Kết
I obtained my Bachelor Degree in 1982 from Dalat University, Biology Faculty at plant physiology Department. From 1982 to 1984 I shifted to other field to do my first job at Cotton Research Center at Thuan Hai Province for doing as a Cotton breeder. After two years doing there, I moved back to my University at Dalat city and works as a lecturer in plant physiology. I has worked in the teaching field for more than 38 years, and has taught biology science at the under graduate levels. The main interesting of my work is applying plant tissue culture method for developing ornamental species and other crops and how to do my best for my students. I also like going here and there for seeing the people activities, landscape… In November'1997 I've finished my Master studies at Dalat University, Vietnam and working in physiology department. We theoretically investigated the kinetics of several photochemical processes in plant and developed methods for cell, tissue culture on ornamental and vegetables. I am the last year PhD student at Horticulture Department of the University of Chungbuk National University, South Korea. I am interested in plant tissue culture and plant physiology. I have joined research group of Professor Paek, Kee Youp; he is my great advisor and supporter during my Ph.D works here. My first project is dealing with micropropagation a rare orchid species (Anoectochilus formosanus. Hay) using for tradition medicine...
