microbial indicators, fecal bacteria, antibiotic, heavy metal, monitoring projects
Theme 2 - Evaluating
We have already investigated in the monitoring of indicators of microbial contamination and antibiotic and heavy metal resistance from the coastal areas, fish farms and ship dismantling zone (Eastern Aegean Sea) for a long time. In addition, we have collected lots of data using cultural and molecular techniques. And we have reached ecologically valuable effective results in marine ecosystems through microbiological scientific research until today. The purpose of the partnership is to improve scientific knowledge capacity after international cooperation.
Dokuz Eylul University, Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology (DEU-IMST) primarily aims to provide contributions to marine sciences and develop the technologies. The areas of specialty and the main activities of our Institute are condensed into the following groups (Marine Living Resources, Marine Chemistry, Marine Geology and Geophysics, Physical Oceanography, Naval Architecture, Coastal Zone Management, Coastal Engineering, Underwater Archeology). DEU-IMST contributes to national and international marine research efforts with hundreds of achieved projects. Additionally, it has already three Research vessels, and using them by reached valuable results from scientific research.
