Biografie

I am a molecular biologist from Turkey. I got my bachelor’s degree from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Istanbul University (Turkey). I received my MSc’s degree from Selcuk University, Agriculture Faculty (Turkey). My MSc thesis was “QRT-PCR analyses of genes involved in energy metabolism and transport in Puccinellia distans grown under different levels of boron applications”.

Beside my MSc thesis project, I also worked in different projects funded by TUBITAK (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey). The project’s aim was to improve salt-tolerant Turkish wheat varieties by using conventional and molecular breeding methods.

In 2018, I received a full scholarship from the Turkish Ministry of Education on behalf of the General Directorate of Agricultural Research and Policies to do PhD in the Netherlands. Thus, I shifted my focus from plants to animals.

I began to do a Ph.D. on 1 March 2019 in Animal Breeding and Genomics. My Ph.D. project will focus on the association of milk-related traits with unique adaptive features of the traditional breeds of six geographically different countries in Africa and Europe.

My Ph.D. supervisors are Martien Groenen, Richard Crooijmans, and Henk Bovenhuis from the Animal Breeding and Genomics group.

Projecten

My PhD Project is part of OPTIBOV (Genetic characterization of cattle populations for optimized performance in African ecosystems). The aim of the project is to improve the production and survival of local breeds well adapted to specific harsh environments. This will allow us to secure the future of these traditional/indigenous local breeds.
