The Thai – French academic cooperation in 6th phase were the projects to improve the efficiency of rubber tree production (Towards the Improvement of the Rubber Tree Productivity) 4rd stage, which was implemented in 2007-2010. The continued projects showed as following:
eco-physiology of rubber: Identification of eco-physiological factors that limit the yield rubber tree production.
A Study of carbon status.
A Study of the status of water in rubber stem.
A Study of the nutrient status in rubber stem.
A study of latex cells metabolism.
A study of rubber cells.
A study of the GMO (Genetic transformation) of the rubber to use genetic engineering to develop the metabolic effects of latex.
The optimization of genetic modification of the rubber plants.
The optimization of the expression analysis of inherited genes.
The functional analysis of latex-specific promoter, and ethylene-inducible promoter.
Genetic map (Genome mapping), and marker assisted selection of rubber trees.
The creation of a population to study the genetic map.
PCR marker development and genetic map.
Assessment of characteristic of agricultural physiology and analysis of QTL.
Improvement the quality of rubber.
Using biochemical approaches to predict the behavior of producers.
The techniques used to improve the collection process were used to predict the behavior of biochemical approaches.
During the past of year 2008, there has been signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on technical cooperation and education between Thailand and the French Republic.
The signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for cooperation in higher education degree (Joint Master Program) on "Infectious, Vector-Borne and Food - borne Diseases: Evolution, Emergence, Spread and Control: MIVA", June 26, 2008, at Kampon Adulyavit meeting room, 2nd Floor of the 50 years general information building, Kasetsart University (Figure 8). This cooperation was initiated by four main divisions of both in Thailand and the Republic of France, including Kasetsart University, University of Montpellier II, CIRAD and Pasteur Institut in order to create an international program for students and capacity building of the veterinary in Southeast Asia.
The signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the technical and educational aspects of rubber or Hevea Research Programme in Partnership (HRPP) Cooperation on June 26, 2008 conducted by the Embassy of the Republic of France in Thailand at Dusit Thani Hotel, Bangkok. This cooperation was set up by researchers of the productivity improvement of rubber project (Towards the Improvement of the Rubber Tree Productivity) under the technical cooperation between Thailand - France supported by the Office of Higher Education Commission (Commission on Higher Education, CHE) and the Republic of France, through the Embassy of the Republic of France to Thailand, the core members (core members) to participate in the HRPP consists of 4 units from both sides were Kasetsart University, Thailand and France, Prince of Songkla University, Department of Agriculture and CIRAD.
From the meeting of the Steering Committee of the Hevea Research Platform in Partnership: HRPP on October 7, 2008 at Kasetsart University, There has been electing president of the HRPP that the philosopher Dr. Prof. Sornprat Tanaisawanyangkoon, Vice President for International Affairs and director of the Center of Thai-French Cooperation on Higher Education and Research (DORAS Center) was elected. Moreover, there was the discussion on the the 1st HRPP Annual Seminar would be held on January 27-29, 2009 at Miracle Grand Convention Hotel , Bangkok.
Center of Thai-French Cooperation on Higher Education and Research (DORAS Center) still coordinate with the academic cooperation between Kasetsart University to individuals and agencies of France and seek for cooperation and budget support from external agencies or individuals to support the operation of the center operated since to 20 years (to 2009).
