The graduate programs are organized to provide an excellent training in basic and applied research areas of molecular biology and genetics.
The main research activities of the department are on molecular genetics (genetic predisposition to cancer, tumor suppressor genes, gene-disease associations), molecular biology (regulation of transcription, differential expression, epigenetics), molecular cell biology (cell cycle, apoptosis, signal transduction). Immunology, bioinformatics, metabolic diseases.
The medium of instruction is English.
The annual tuition for students entering the graduate program in September 2014 is 13.950 US dollars for international students and 24.080 TL for Turkish students (including value added tax).
In addition to at least 24 credit units of course work, the M.S. degree candidate must prepare and successfully defend a thesis.
Expected duration to complete the M.S. program is four semesters; the maximum duration is six semesters.
All applicants are required to have a B.S. degree in molecular biology and genetics, biology, or in a related field of science or engineering.
Students with a B.S. degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a related field may also apply; however, such students may be requested to take several undergraduate courses in molecular biology and genetics to acquire necessary background in the field. Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Egitimi Giris Sinavi - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, past academic records, reference letters and an interview.
Applicants who are not Turkish citizens and Turkish citizen applicants who are residents of another country may take GRE instead of ALES. All non-native speakers of English are required to submit a proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.
