METU Ancient DNA and Population Genetics Lab

Welcome! We study the history of humans, domestic species, and natural populations using ancient DNA and population genetics.

Our research includes:

  • Demography, such as human population movements and admixture events in west Eurasia through the Holocene.
  • Kinship patterns, such as genetic relatedness among socially related individuals, and inbreeding.
  • Selection, both in human populations and in domestic animals.

You can find information about our research, collaboration opportunities and job openings in the menu above.
