Evolutionary Genetics Laboratory (eGL) was established in 2014. Since the beginning, lots of projects have been conducting. Mainly, DNA barcoding and environmental DNA (eDNA) studies are being performed in eGL. On the other hand, eGL is supported by Food and Agriculture Ministry of Turkey, Science and Industry Ministry of Turkey, TUBITAK and COST organisation. Also eGL is a founder member of European eDNA Network. In the light of these informations; molecular and phylogenetic analyses are being provided and with the help of the financial support of projects, scholarships are provided to MSc and PhD students.    

Make researches about molecular biology


To provide education for scientists, students and participants at every level


To share knowledge and experience with scientists


To improve new methods and tools


To support interdisciplinary studies in natural sciences


To unserstand life, nature and evolution through scientific basis
