I received BSC degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics from Zonguldak Bülent Ecevit University in 2018. I worked on molecular identication of fungi under the supervision of Bekir ÇÖL at Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University in 2017. In September 2018, I started MSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics in Gebze Technical University. After the English preparatory year I will work on recombinant enzyme production in the BERC laboratory.
Ferhat ÖCAL was born in Malatya in 26.08.1992 and finalized his high school in Malatya then for chemistry education he went to Abant Izzet Baysal University and graduated from chemistry department in 06.02.2017. During his bachelor education he had worked very actively in research laboratories for 4 years to improve his knowledges and skills both in chemistry and molecular biology. In laboratories he worked on bacterial and yeast genetics, cloning procedures and microorganism analysis. Also, he executed his internship in molecular biology department at Izmir institute of technology and I worked on yeast genetic, doxorubicin resistance gene cloning procedures. In senior year of his education in university he executed a special project that is called ‘’The determination of peroxiredoxin gene expression whether the expression of that gene is dependent to miscellaneous stress conditions or not, by using Reverse Transcriptase PCR analysis in Thermoplasma acidophilum.’’ and his project was supported by TUBITAK (the scientific and technological research facility of TURKEY). Currently he is continuing his master’s degree education under supervisor of Dr. Barış BİNAY at Biotechnology department at Gebze Technical University.
