But, it is, I think, a heck of a good start for the follow-up studies. It is open access, so enjoy: Whole genome sequencing of Turkish genomes … Continue reading Turkish genomes – Now published
We are now officially affiliated with Institute for European and Mediterranean Archaeology, which involve multidisciplinary research and many outstanding colleagues. This is a pretty nice framework for students that want to undertake anthropological fieldwork and archaeogenetics research. Also, very interesting and high-profile international seminar series is a plus.

One catchy title, for instance, … Continue reading Turkey Visit and Turkish Genome Research
Finally, our paper in which we discuss the interplay between the genetic and cultural dynamics in Central Anatolia was published online in American Anthropologist. You can find a link to the article here... Biological Ancestries, Kinship Connections, and projected identities in four Central Anatolian Settlements: Insight from culturally contextualized genetic anthropology ABSTRACT Previous population genetics … Continue reading Culturally Contextualized Genetic Anthropology
I was a co-author in an article, which made an initial attempt to look into the genetic structure in ancient Anatolia. If you are interested: Understanding Early Bronze Age social structure through mortuary remains: A pilot aDNA study from Titriş Höyük, southeastern Turkey
