Area 3 (‘Society’): Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services
We intend to improve animal product quality and safety by new developed laboratory test. This novel method will increase quality of animal products and contribute to public health by preventing zoonotic diseases.
We have expertise on development of molecular detection tests and nanodiagnosis assays for the detection of DNA of zoonotic bacteria using nano particles. These tests can be alternative to the PCR in the future.
We are looking for partners to cooperate on the development of new nanodiagnosis methods that will detect zoonotic bacteria in animal products.
Our research team works at the departments of Microbiology in Veterinary Faculty of Aksaray University and Veterinary Faculty of Selcuk University. Our group administers a lot of research project about development of vaccines, detection kits and nanodiagnosis assays for livestock and animal products. Zoonotic diseases have very importance to affect human and animal health. New and rapid molecular tests such as nano technology based are necessary for rapid detection of zoonotic disease agents in animal products.
