Why study Molecular Biology and Genetics?

MBG insan ve tüm diğer canlılar için sağlıklı yaşamın temelini aydınlatmak üzere gerçekleştirilen tüm çalışmaları kapsayan bir bilim dalıdır. Örneğin, sağlık sektöründe kullanılan ilaçlar ve metodolojilerin hemen hepsi bu temel bilim dalında elde edilen bulgulardan kaynaklanmaktadır.

PhD / MSc Entrance Exam Results

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics submitted the following list of names to the Institute of Graduate Studies in Science and Engineering at Bogazici University. Formal acceptance to the MSc / PhD program is pending approval by the Institute of Graduate Studies.


A new project, "Identification and molecular characterization of yeast species suitable for wine/alcohol fermentation from wineyards of Turkey" has been granted by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock".
This two year project, started in June 2013 is coordinated by Prof. Nes'e Bilgin. The project aims to collect native wine yeast for the needs of industrial wine makers in Turkey which is currently import dependent.

BU - EMBO - KU Leuven Partnership

The Boğaziçi University - EMBO - University of Leuven partnership for exchange of young researchers

To stimulate exchange of young researchers and to promote international collaboration at the European level, Bogaziçi University, European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO), and the Leuven International Doctoral School Biomedical Sciences have set up a joint programme that allows for:

  • Short term fellowships (maximum 3 months) for Master students from Boğaziçi University to receive research training in Leuven.
  • Organization of advanced thematic courses for Master and PhD students at Boğaziçi University.
  • Recruitment of doctoral students.
