Dr. Ersin was the first who began to plant rubber and hinnye trees in Vietnam. Library of Dr. Ersina and his Cabinet today have become a popular Museum, which exhibits — laboratory equipment and some personal stuff. A museum dedicated to the famous scientist is in Nha Trang on the address 10 Tran Phu. In addition to the many discoveries of Virology and microbiology, his greatest achievement considers the identification of the Microbe that causes bubonic plague. He also prrinadležit League top hinnyh landing and rubber trees in Vietnam cult place among all tourists. The main thing is not to come during the weekend, quite often here closed.
