Scientific Facilities

Our laboratories possess highly advanced technical devices in the fields of molecular biology and genetics, microbiology, cell culture, and chemistry.

Molecular Biology & Genetics is the fastest growing and increasingly important field of the modern medicine. In Molecular Biology & Genetics laboratories isolation and analysis of DNA and RNA, mutation and polymorphism detection, and genotype indication can be easily performed. Design and areal isolation of Molecular Biology & Genetics laboratories allow giving service in a clinic level. Click on the link below for further information:

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi, and protozoa. This discipline includes fundamental research on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution, and clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response to these agents. The basic aims in a microbiology laboratory are to detect, to culture and grow, to isolate, to identify microorganisms in two ways: observing under a microscope and/or culturing and growing these organisms.

Topics in Cell Culture Laboratory include aseptic technique, preparation and use of various culture media, cell counting and dilution, origin and uses of various cell lines, contamination and quality control. Furthermore, overview of survey of metabolism, cell structure and function, growth factors and signal transduction. In Cell Culture Laboratory, studies are generally being performed to develop anticancer drugs in numerous cancer cell-lines. Click on the link below for further informations:

Bioinformatics and Molecular Modeling are interdisciplinary research fields that brought biology, computer science, mathematics, and statistics together. Our Bioinformatics sub-branch explores integrative and comparative high-throughput data analysis, context specific- biological network reconstruction and identification of molecular targets via advanced statistical methods and algorithms. Molecular Modeling sub-branch, on the other hand, investigates several subjects including protein-protein interactions, targeted drug design, catalyst-surface interactions, and nanoporous materials using advanced quantum simulations. We carry out our research using our workstations and high performance computing resources of Turkey (TRUBA).

Bioinformatics and Molecular Modeling Laboratory (BioMM)

Bioprocess and Yeast Laboratory

Bioprocess Engineering is defined as a process that uses all living cells or components thereof (eg enzymes, chloroplasts) to effect desired physical or chemical changes. Bioprocess Engineering is involved in the design and development of equipment and processes for the production of products such as food, feed, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, chemicals and polymers and paper from biological materials.

The experiments in Basic Laboratory are designed to give bioengineering students practical skills, knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of bioengineering. Experiments in general include basic methods for molecular biology and genetics, bioprocess and biomaterial engineering. For example, solution preparation and pH measurement, solubility measurement, spectrophotometric analysis and the like. Click on the link below for more information:
