Background Information

Microorganisms are capable of producing various metabolites with their wide biodiversity. After which the best example of the use of antibiotics as microbial products in the medical field, many biologically active metabolites and various enzymes have also begun to be investigated. Biologically based polymers have increasingly attracted attention in recent years with their potential for medical use

Research Area

  • Production, modification, optimization, characterization and predominantly medical application studies of bacterial products such as enzyme, protein, polymer, bioactive metabolite.
  • Isolation, identification and metagenomic studies of industrial or medically important species of bacteria from different environments
