Izzy Starr (they/them/their) led this project along with our collaborators Ani Sinha, and Kristina Seiffert to investigate the relationship between recent evolution and immune-mediated trends in human skin. Our major finding is that there are
Stefan (Ruhl) and I recently published a comprehensive survey of the amylase gene copy number and salivary enzyme activity among mammalian species eLife. Petar (Pajic) was the driving force for the sample collection and analysis.
Our lab has been excited by genomic structural variation because we believe that they underlie a considerable and underappreciated part of the phenotypic variation in primates. It is just that they are challenging to study
We have helped Cemali Bekpen and the Max Planck Evolutionary Biology Group of Dr. Tautz in resolving a very complicated and variable gene duplication. Even though, some of the trends remain fuzzy, it is now
Our efforts to resequence and analyze primate genomes with a focus on genomic structural variation has now been published. Here is the link for the paper and here is the link for the curated datasets. The
This paper describing a nice evolutionary story about interaction between HIV and the host immune system, is mostly the effort of our collaborators in Mount Sinai. You can find the abstract below and here is
Bilim kazanı için İlker ve Aysu ile uzunca bir muhabbet ettik. Tatlı dillerinden ayrılıp da eve dönmem gece yarısı 1’i buldu. Ama galiba ayırdığımız 5 saate değdi. İnsanı insan yapan nedir diye sorduk – Dinlemek
I am the co-first author of a recent paper with Rebecca (Iskow), discussing the impact of copy number differences between primate species to expression regulation. I do think that copy number differences of regulatory genes
