General Information

We aim to provide a better understanding of translational control mechansims in gene expression. Furthermore, synthesis of biologically active materials for the treatment of various diseases by genetically modified organisms is intended.  


PCR (Polimerase chain reaction): Enzymatic amplification of a DNA region between two segments whose sequence is known in order to obtain nucleic acid molecules necessary for the cloning.

Gene amplification (cloning): Insertion of the nucleic acid molecule into a carrier called vector by the use of the ligase enzyme after its digestion with appropriate enzymes.

Gene transfer: Alteration of the genetic code of an organism by recombinant DNA technology in order to direct it for the synthesis of biologically active materials. 

Isolation and purification of active materials: Isolation of active materials synthesized by the genetically modified organisms.
