Molecular Biology and Genetics (English)



Studies in the field of Molecular Biology and Genetics gained importance with DNA studies in 1953 and accelerated via developments in technology and methods in the 1980s and the “Human Genome Project” in the 2000s.


The Goals of the Department

· Analysis of molecular pathology of complicated diseases like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes which affect many people in our day, as well as rare hereditary diseases

· Development of the methods of personal treatment and gene therapy in treatment of pharmagenetics

· Development of living beings, use of bacteria and ferments in biotechnology, understanding biological systems with systems biology

· 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 the summer period.


Job Opportunities

Students of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, with the knowledge and experience they will gain in the courses they take during the undergraduate program, can work as an academician, in graduate programs (master, doctorate), industrial organizations (biomedical, biotechnology), genetic diagnosis centers, in vitro fertilization centers, etc. they will be able to easily find a place for themselves in the fields. With the English education they receive, students will be able to follow scientific developments at the international level, gain graduate education, internship and job opportunities in international fields.
