Dr. Suhartono, S.Si., M.Sc.
Tentang Saya (About Me)
I have been joining as a lecturer and researcher at the Department of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences, Syiah Kuala University since 2006. I had my bachelor degree (S1) in Biology from Bogor Agricultural University (www.ipb.ac.id) in 2005, finished my master program (S2) in Medical and Molecular Microbiology in 2008 at the University of Manchester, Manchester, UK (www.manchester.ac.uk) before completing my doctoral program (S3) in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville-AR, USA (www.uark.edu) in 2016.
For undergraduate levels, I am teaching Microbiology, Microbial Physiology, Microbial Genetics, as well as Biology. Additionally, I am also teaching Microbial Ecology for graduate level.
My research interests focus on the dissemination and persistence of antibiotic resistance genes encoded within mobile genetic elements, particularly bacterial integrons and plasmids. The genes are easily transferred and mobilized from and to the same or different bacteria in the environment through horizontal gene transfers, especially by means of conjugation.
Morevoer, I have also research interests on searching natural products potentially to be applied as antibiofilm agents. Currently, I have research on Kelor (Moringa oleifera) and waru (Hibiscus tiliaceus) extracts that significantly inhibited the biofilm formation of Vibrio alginolyticus, a pathogenic bacterium on fish and prawn aquaculture.
