Archaeogenomic analysis of genetic and cultural interactions in Neolithic Anatolian societies (NEOGENE)
Somel, Mehmet; Atakuman, Çiğdem; Sürer, Elif; Erdal, Yılmaz Selim; Özer, Füsun(2023)
The Neolithic Transition in the Near East (c.10,000-6,000 BC) was a period of singular sociocultural change, when societies adopted sedentary life and agriculture for the first time in human history. This project will join...
Network of Leading European AQUAtic MesoCOSM Facilities Connecting Mountains to Oceans from the Arctic to the Mediterranean (AQUACOSM)
Beklioğlu, Meryem(2021-8-31)
Experimentation in mesocosms is arguably the single most powerful approach to obtain a mechanistic quantitative understanding of ecosystem-level impacts of stressors in complex systems, especially when embedded in long-ter...

The genetic diversity of the Mediterranean swordfish (Xiphias gladius Linneus) has not been explored extensively at its easternmost range so far. In this study, modern X. gladius samples from the eastern part of the Medite...
Million-year-old DNA sheds light on the genomic history of mammoths
van der Valk, Tom; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-2-17)
Temporal genomic data hold great potential for studying evolutionary processes such as speciation. However, sampling across speciation events would, in many cases, require genomic time series that stretch well back into th...
Arid4b alters cell cycle and cell death dynamics during mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation.
Güven, Gözde; Terzi Çizmecioğlu, Nihal (2021-02-09)
Cell division and death play an important role in embryonic development. Cell specialization is accompanied with slow proliferation and quiescence. Cell death is important for morphogenesis. Gene expression changes during ...
Identification of Potential Therapeutic Genes and Pathways in Phytoestrogen Emodin Treated Breast Cancer Cell Lines via Network Biology Approaches
Sakalli-Tecim, Elif; Uyar-Arpaci, Pembegul; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün (2021-02-01)
Phytoestrogens have been investigated for their potential anti-tumorigenic effects in various cancers including breast cancer. Emodin being a phytoestrogen shows anti-carcinogenic properties especially in estrogen receptor...
Nutrient Loading, Temperature and Heat Wave Effects on Nutrients, Oxygen and Metabolism in Shallow Lake Mesocosms Pre-Adapted for 11 Years
Jeppesen, Erik; Audet, Joachim; Davidson, Thomas A.; Neif, Erika M.; Cao, Yu; Filiz, Nur; Lauridsen, Torben L.; Larsen, Soren E.; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Sh, Tserenpil; Sondergaard, Martin (2021-01-01)
Global changes (e.g., warming and population growth) affect nutrient loadings and temperatures, but global warming also results in more frequent extreme events, such as heat waves. Using data from the world's longest-runni...
