The College of Science has held a panel discussion concern the environmental effects of the Ceratophyllum plants (Shambalan).

The College of Science has held a panel discussion regarding the environmental effects of Shambalan in removing some heavy metals and diagnosing possible genetic variations using molecular indicators, prepared by graduate student Hussein Ali Khalil.
The study aims to evaluate the efficiency of the Shambalan plant in removing heavy metals from water and the effect of these minerals on the genetic side of the plant.
The study has recommended the use of the Shambalan plant in the biological removal of heavy metals from factory waste and heavy water by designing special treatment units for this purpose, as well as conducting new research on other aquatic plants scattered in the Iraqi environment to find out their ability to biological removal of heavy metals and increases in the number of indicators used. In the study and the use of other molecular indicators, and increasing the period of exposure to heavy metals to follow the behavior of DNA, does it repair damages through repair programs? or does DNA damage increase by increasing the duration of exposure?
The Dean said that the university always strives to improve its scientific output.
