Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (English)


Moleküler Biyoloji ve GenetikStudies in the field of Molecular Biology and Genetics gained importance with DNA studies in 1953 and accelerated via developments in technology and methods in 1980s and the “Human Genome Project” in 2000s. Fields of study of Molecular Biology and Genetics include: hereditary diseases; analysis of molecular pathology of complicated diseases like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes which affect many people in our day; pharmagenetic; development of the methods of personal treatment and gene therapy in treatment procedures; development of living beings; use of bacteria and ferments in biotechnology; biological systems; analysis of genetics of species through bioinformatic methods.



Istanbul Arel University Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics aims to train expert personnel who are well-educated in the field of molecular biology and genetics which is increasingly being required in the developing world in different fields like medicine, agriculture, industry; who can resolve problems, make innovations; and who can study independently. Students have the opportunity to apply and improve their theoretical knowledge through the laboratory training they receive during their undergraduate education in addition to the internship they do in summer period.
