Damla Bilgin

Areas Damla Bilgin is Knowledgeable in:

plant response to abiotic stress such as drought, heat etc
plant-pathogen interactions for example virus, fungi
broad range resistance against pathogens
high-throughput gene expression analysis
metabolomics especially secondary metabolites
epigenetics (stress memory
molecular approaches to increase biomass and yield in plants

Techniques Damla Bilgin Uses:

I am a broadly trained plant scientist and have experience in molecular biology techniques (RNA, DNA isolation, high-throughput gene expression analysis, cloning, virus induced gene silencing). I use experimental and computational systems biology tools, functional genomics and activity based metabolomics. Also, I have experience related to plant photosynthesis, growth, biomass and yield.

Damla Bilgin's Problem Solving Skills:

  1. Molecular biology techniques, LC/MS user

Damla Bilgin's Problem Solving Experience:

  1. -I developed an RNA isolation protocol that gives high yield clean RNA from plants and can be used for real-time RT-PCR and Affymetrix GeneChip.
    -I have a pending patent for a defense compound that has antifungal activity against plant and animal fungi
    -I developed an high throughput bacterial infection method that can be used in field experimental setups.
