Scientific Research

The Research Laboratory is used by our MSc and PhD students for the purpose of conducting their graduate research projects. This laboratory is also available for the research groups that are active at our Department for their research experiments that are made public either via participation at international conferences or via journal publication. The lab is extensively equipped with technologies that enable a wide range of experiments. Some projects that are currently underway or have previously been conducted in this laboratory include:

  • Molecular mechanisms of PTSD within the DAAD Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe 2015
  • Forensic botany: DNA isolation methods for T. officinale (organic and inorganic extraction)
  • Biofilms
  • G-quadruplex formation in DNA primers
  • Effect of pesticides on activity of β-glucosidase
  • PAGE protocol optimization
  • DNA isolation from buccal swabs (Qiagen)
  • Multiplex STR PCR amplification
  • Plant tissue culture
  • Heavy metal accumulation in Brassica sp.
  • Boron accumulation in bacteria
  • Effect of silica and nanosilica on wheat and barley gene expression
  • Effect of antioxidants on melanin expression
  • Illustration of genetic variation through DNA analysis
