Background: Turkey is a crossroads of major population movements throughout history and has been a hotspot of cultural interactions. Several studies have investigated the complex population history of Turkey through a limited set of genetic markers. However, to date, there have been no studies to assess the genetic variation at the whole genome level using whole genome sequencing. Here, we present whole genome sequences of 16 Turkish individuals resequenced at high coverage (32 x -48x).

Novel insights on demographic history of tribal and caste groups from West Maharashtra (India) using genome-wide data
Debortoli, Guilherme; Abbatangelo, Cristina; Ceballos, Francisco; Fortes-Lima, Cesar; Norton, Heather L.; Ozarkar, Shantanu; Parra, Esteban J.; Jonnalagadda, Manjari (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-6-22)
The South Asian subcontinent is characterized by a complex history of human migrations and population interactions. In this study, we used genome-wide data to provide novel insights on the demographic history and population relationships of six Indo-European populations from the Indian State of West Maharashtra. The samples correspond to two castes (Deshastha Brahmins and Kunbi Marathas) and four tribal groups (Kokana, Warli, Bhil and Pawara). We show that tribal groups have had much smaller effective popul...
Evaluation of restoration projects of traditional dwellings in outer citadel of Ankara which are given gastronomic functions
Keskin, Irmak; Asatekin, Nafia Gül; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2008)
Traditional Dwellings in Ankara Citadel have an important place among both Anatolian and Ankara Traditional Dwellings, reflecting certain characteristics of their own. Citadel Area, as one of the oldest settlements in Ankara, has been hosting both residential and commercial activities for a very long period of time. Today, the area has regained its popularity; as a commercial, cultural and tourism center with the potential of its remaining values from the past and conservation movements held in the area sta...
Spatial variations of active stress patterns and frequencymagnitude distribution of earthquakes in Western Anatolia, Turkey
Shah, S Tanvir; Özacar, Atilla Arda (null; 2018-04-23)
Western Anatolia is one of the most important tectonic elements of Turkey, and constitutes the eastern margin of Aegean Extensional Province. The area is one of the most seismically active continental margins around the globe experiencing N-S extension. Earthquake data in this study is used to analyze the active stress patterns and to estimate the earthquake return periods for different sub-regions in western Anatolia. Focal mechanism solution data is used for determining the orientations and ratios of prin...
Critical evaluation of “adjacent areas” concept from urban growth perspective in Turkish urban planning: the case of Ankara
Yıldırım, Sibel; Keskinok, Hüseyin Çağatay; Department of City and Regional Planning (2008)
The effects of expansion of cities on the fringe area are still the common problems of several countries as well as Turkey. The main problem stemming from rapid urban growth was described as urban sprawl that has been used as waste of land, time, and natural resources. Although sprawl becomes usually unplanned, uncontrolled, and uncoordinated, it can be claimed that some local and national government policies triggers the urban sprawl by creating planned areas more than required. The growth management polic...
