T24'de genetik çeşitlilik üzerine bir söyleşi yaptık Hazal Özvarış ile. Biraz dallanıp budaklansa da, sanıyorum bazı ana temaları isabetli bir şekilde sunabildik. Söyleşiye buradan ulaşabilirsiniz. Bu vesile ile Ekşi Sözlük'te yerimi almış oldum. 🙂
Thanks to the very nice organization by Will Kinney and others, there was an awesome symposium about "Origins" in the broader sense. It was open to the public. We had a lot fun and a very interesting range of discussions. You can find some information, as well as the slides for the talks here -
We are now affliated iwth the Program in Evolution, Ecology and Behavior (EEB) in University at Buffalo. This may be a good opportunity for graduate students and visiting scientists interested in evolutionary/anthropological genomics to interact with our group. So, we are looking forward to working with the EEB folk in the coming years. Also, Omer will … Continue reading The lab is now affiliated with Program in Evolution, Ecology and Behavior
I am giving a talk tomorrow at AAPAs that touches on the impact of genomic structural variation on the phenotypic diversity within and between primate species. For more details: Link
The education committee of the AAAG is organizing a panel on postdoctoral training at the AAPA meeting this year with very cool people across the field of anthropological genetics. If you are looking for a postdoctoral position or if you are beginning one, I think this will be very helpful for you. Also, for early … Continue reading AAAG Panel: Postdoctoral Training in Anthropological Genetics #AAPA2013
I had a chance to visit Turkey, primarily to attend a workshop as a member of the "Turkish Genome Research" project. It was a lot of media hype mostly regarding the very basic concepts of genomics, rather than the specifics of the Turkish Genome variation, which we are currently analyzing. One catchy title, for instance, … Continue reading Turkey Visit and Turkish Genome Research
Açık Bilim isimli son derece şık ve kaliteli bir şekilde yayına başlayan bir çevrim içi bilim dergisi ile söyleşim oldu. Bilginize. Bu söyleşiye önayak olan Çağrı Yalgın'a teşekkürler bu arada.
I was invited to give a talk at American Association of Anthropological Genetics (AAAG). The organizers of the symposium were Graciela Cabana and Lorena Havill. I think, they did a great job of putting together a diverse group of researchers to discuss "Anthropological Genetics in the Genomic Era". If you are interested in my talk, … Continue reading Anthropological genomics in the era of affordable and highthroughput technologies
"Introduction to Human Genetics" talk series, which I also contributed, is online in the Henry Stewart Talks website. If you are interested, you can listen to the first 10 minutes of my lecture on "Copy Number Variation" Citation:Gökçümen, Ö. (2009), "Copy Number Variation", in Veeramah, K. (ed.), Introduction to Human Genetics: Fundamentals and latest … Continue reading Henry Stewart Talks – Copy Number Variation
I gave a talk at NHP 2009 about copy number variants among rhesus macaques. You can reach the abstract of this talk from here.
