Over 200 plant extracts were prepared from different family plants of rich flora of Turkey, in a frame of international collaborative project "Bioactive Turkish Plant Constituents". The plants were chosen randomly and/or partly based on their folkloric uses which belonged to 40 distinct families growing in Aegean and Marmara region, and their extracts were screened for their DNA damaging activity its well as for their human ovarian cytotoxic activity.
