About

The Molecular Biology, Genetics and Bioengineering program from Sabanci University aims to develop an integrated scientific perspective on the fundamentals of molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and cell biology. 

Overview

Key Features

These topics all rely on a solid background in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The program also has a biotechnology dimension with courses on the exploitation of biological systems for developing new technologies and industrial applications. We educate future bioengineers who benefit from interdisciplinary undergraduate courses to build an understanding of engineering concepts and techniques. Students learn to apply engineering principles to the re-conceptualization of of biological phenomena and are trained to acquire skills for developing new materials and processes, including genetic modification of agriculturally important plants and human cells.
