Molecular Biology is a discipline which reveals with examining the events in living cells of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, cell structure and function, and also the interaction of cells in vitro at a molecular degree. In this respect, it came forward as a discipline examining the universal macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins in living systems as a target, and then it caused improvement in disciplines such as genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, botany, zoology, ecology, cell biology, and biophysics in molecular level with gaining function via lots of new techniques which was developed with genetic engineering. Molecular biology has an integrationist feature, therefore, this character increases its usage potential in several branches of biology in whichever the living system. This linking character of molecular biology is because of its focusing to illuminate on complete structures of nucleic acids, proteins, and the structure of enzymes which are extremely important in living organisms.
Mission of Molecular Biology Division: Our mission is to contribute education, teaching, and investigations illuminating applications yielding for firstly the human being, for the environment and for all organisms in the environment by improving molecular biology and genetic engineering techniques in biologic units including the most basic and practical departments. For this purpose, one of our main goals is to perform qualified current studies having international degree in molecular biology which also owns interdisciplinary approach and to educate most of undergraduate and graduate students in supplying expertise staff controlling molecular biological studies in all investigations and projects performed.
Vission of Molecular Biology Division: Technological improvements in genetic engineering area in 20th century contribute dramatically the development of most basic (agricultural, medicine, farming) and applied sciences (industry) at industrial level. In recent decades, the applications of molecular biology and genetic engineering are used to obtain biotechnological products in industrial applications. Our vision as molecular biology division is to contribute the education of expert biologist and scientists that are lack in our country in molecular biology area which extremely impresses the century. In the content of this vision, our basic major target is to have a notable position in a platform generating societies that are developed in science, to perform investigation and improvement activity competing with international molecular biologic studies, and to educate qualified and conscious manpower at graduate and undergraduate level.
