General description

Have you ever thought what your body consists of?

Have you ever wondered the incredible structure of DNA?

Do you want to make your own mutant?


Have you ever heard GMO? ( You probably ate before)

If you thought about these before, you probably should come to IZMIR in this Autumn.

You will learn all these answers in IZMIR!

This Autumn, we invite you to discover our bodies’ amazing structure! You can come and learn DNA’s amazing world. DNA is stored as a code made up of four bases. These are; adenine (A), guanine(G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). Human DNA consists of about 3 billion bases, and more than 99 percent of these bases are the same in all people. The order or sequence of these bases determines the information for building and maintaining an organism, similar to the way in which letters of the alphabet appear in certain order to form words and sentences.

On the other hand, you will have the chance to visit our beautiful city, IZMIR. Also, you can taste our traditional foods, meeting Turkish people and learning our culture, too.

If you want to do all of them, we are looking forward to meeting you to IZMIR!
