As a Turkish research organisation (MTÜ, Fisheries Faculty), we have been working on environmental behaviour of emerging pollutants (antibiotics, antidepressants and other human drugs such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), pathogen organisms for human [Bacteria and Parasites (Giardia and Cryptosporidium)] and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in surface water and sediments.
We are interested in making a cooperation with research groups which can provide in the following listed items;
1. Applications of environmental DNA metabarcoding in the Aquatic pollution
2. The investigation of microorganisms that threaten human health in surface waters.
3. Investigation of aquatic pollutants
If you have a proposal (or intention of preparing a new one) for AquaticPollutants call, we will be appreciated if you consider us as a partner.
Our university is located in Malatya Province near to Turkey's largest dams and Euprhates River. So that, we can easily obtain a variety of water and sediment samples.
