Prof. Tunç Çatal indicated that Bacillus sp. Type microorganisms that are isolated and identified by the central infrastructure facilities were registered in the International GenBank database. Prof. Çatal stated, “Amylase enzyme production process which is widely used in industry has been investigated and enzyme production has been increased with the applied experimental method and optimization studies in the research”.
A national product
The study carried out with the support of the Istanbul Development Agency was designed as a national product that also includes the enzyme production method for field application and patent application supported by the Office of Technology Transfer Office, Üsküdar University Rectorate and Board of Trustees.
