Microbial Biotechnology Research Laboratory

Microbial Biotechnology Research Laboratory, which is established with the support of İstanbul Development Agency, aims to provide a detailed understanding of the important biological processes and transfer them to the industrial environment with various and innovative methods. Our microorganism groups used in studies are bacteria, fungi and algae. The following is aimed to be discovered through using these microorganisms;

  • To apply microbiology and biotechnology research methods
  • To explore the application areas of microbiological information
  • To conduct microbiological and biotechnological research reports after planning and application
  • R & D for biotechnological products
  • Patents as the result of innovative and original studies
  • To discover new discoveries in the field of biotechnology.
