The M.S. program is 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, neurophysiology, metabolic diseases.

The medium of instruction is English.

Contents

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.

Requirements

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 Lisansustu 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. Those who cannot satisfy the English language requirements should attend English Preparatory School first.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
TOEFL paper-based test score : 550
TOEFL iBT® test: 82

Funding

Currently almost all of the graduate students receive financial support. Financial assistance is provided in the form of a tuition waiver; a monthly stipend to cover the living costs may also be added. Both admission and financial assistance are based on academic accomplishment and scholarly promise alone, without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin or physical disabilities.
