Who We Are?

The Doganlar/Frary lab is led by Prof. Dr. Sami Doganlar and Prof. Dr. Anne Frary. Dr. Doganlar has expertise in the areas of plant breeding, marker assisted selection and trait mapping. Dr. Frary is experienced in plant tissue culture and genetic engineering and trait mapping. They established their lab at Izmir Institute of Technology in 2002. The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for plant genomics and metabolomics research. The lab hosts both M.S. and Ph.D. students as well as postdoctoral researchers and undergraduate internship students.

Fields of Research

Genomics

Genomics

Genomics is the study of an organism at the DNA level and included research on gene and genome structure, function and evolution. Our work in the area of genomics focuses on DNA marker development, assessment of genetic diversity, gene and genome mapping.

Metabolomics

Metabolomics

Metabolomics examines the metabolites produced by an organism. Our lab studies the metabolites involved in plant nutritional quality and flavor as well as potentially harmful but useful compounds such as eggplant glycoalkaloids.

Genome Editing

Genome Editing

Genome editing allows precise changes to the DNA of an organism without the introduction of ‘foreign’ genes. Our research in this area is aimed at altering capsaicin production in hot peppers.

Abiotic & Biotic Stress Tolerance

Abiotic & Biotic Stress Tolerance

Environmental (abiotic) and biological (biotic) stresses are major factors in reducing plant yield and quality. In the area of abiotic stress tolerance, our lab studies the effects of drought, salinity and toxic mineral content on plants. We are also interested in biotic stresses including disease and insect resistance.

Proteomics

Proteomics

Proteomics is the study of the proteins produced by a cell or organism. Our research in this area examines the proteomic response of plants to abiotic stress.

Genetic Engineering

Genetic Engineering

Genetic engineering or transformation involves the introduction of ‘foreign’ genes into the plant genome. Our group has used transformation to engineer insect resistance and cytokinin synthesis in tomato.

Genome & Gene Mapping

Nutritional Quality

Nutritional Quality

Plants are an important food source for humans and other animals and their nutritional quality is crucial for health and well-being. Our team is interested in the genetic control of these traits and their potential improvement by classical breeding and genetic engineering.
