Mission: The Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is interested in providing undergraduate and doctoral education on etiology, pathogenesis, antibiotic resistance of agents, protection and control measures in infectious diseases of animals and conducting applied and basic research on these issues.
Education: Vocational compulsory courses such as Epidemiology, General Microbiology, Immunology and Serological Diagnostic Methods, Special Microbiology and Infectious Diseases of Poultry and Supervised Study, which can be opened separately for these 5 courses, are given by the faculty members, vocational field elective courses for intern groups such as Public Health in Veterinary Medicine, Diagnosis and Prevention in Poultry Infectious Diseases, Clinical Laboratory Diagnosis and 12 elective courses are given to doctoral students.
Research: Research and doctoral level in Microbiology and Molecular Microbiology Laboratories on molecular diagnosis of poultry mycoplasmas, molecular verification and genotyping of Salmonella isolates isolated from animals, molecular and bacteriological diagnosis of Mycoplasma agalactiae, genetic examination of mecgene and other virulens factors in Staphylococcus isolates, PCR detection and genotyping of Infectious Bronchitis Virus studies are continuing. Veterinary Medicine students benefit from the laboratory facilities created within the scope of doctoral studies and projects in the maximum amount.
Routine Laboratory Diagnostics: Bacteriological, mycological, virological and serological examinations are carried out in the samples sent to the diagnostic laboratory of the Department of Microbiology by Uludağ University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Clinics and Research and Application Farm and by public and private institutions. In the Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, molecular diagnosis of bacterial and viral infections of poultry and farm animals is carried out, and specific researches are carried out for factors such as Mycoplasma, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Infectious Bronchitis Virus.
