Plant Molecular Biology and Genetics Lab

Plant Molecular Biology and Genetics Lab

Plant Molecular Biology and Genetics Lab is focused on biotic and abiotic stress response mechanisms and identification of related genes in herbicide resistance in order to improve existing wheat cultivars and produce stress tolerant crops via genetic transformation systems. Gene transmission and silencing and biodiversity in plants using DNA-RNA fingerprinting and comparative genome analysis are also investigated. Basic molecular biology equipments, analytical balances, microcentrifuges, high-speed centrifuges, ultracentrifuge, incubators and shakers, PCR machines, spectrophotometers, electroporator, Real Time PCR, DNA sequencer, horizontal and vertical electrophoresis systems, gel documentation system, hybridization oven, safety cabinets, AFLP analyzer, and Biolistic Particle Delivery System are the equipment and systems available in the Plant Molecular Biology and Genetics lab.
