Program Activities

 The original research and review articles (SCI or peer-reviewed journals) according to our department academic facilities have been published were given link below 

 (Academic staff research article)
 

Research
 

Research topics are divided into two part which are presented one research group. Molecular cancer biology group is focused on cyclin dependent kinases (CDK) and their intracellular effects on signalling networks in various cancer cells. In addition research on CDK inhibitors and their apoptotic effects by monitoring several signalling networks including polyamines are going in prostate, colon and breast cancer cells. Group is also investigating several single nucleotid mutations in possible relationship with human diseases.

Plant biotechnology group is focused on salt and drought stress in several agriculture plants and also ornamentals by application of radiation. Group is also working on plant cell culture techniques and charecterization of target genes by using proteomic approaches.  Investigation of epigenetic regulation of seed generations is another research objective
