Evolutionary Genetics Laboratory (eGL) was established in 2014. Since the beginning, lots of projects have been conducting. Mainly, DNA barcoding and environmental DNA (eDNA) studies are being performed in eGL. On the other hand, eGL is supported by Food and Agriculture Ministry of Turkey, Science and Industry Ministry of Turkey, TUBITAK and COST organisation. Also eGL is a founder member of European eDNA Network. In the light of these informations; molecular and phylogenetic analyses are being provided and with the help of the financial support of projects, scholarships are provided to MSc and PhD students.
Make researches about molecular biology
To provide education for scientists, students and participants at every level
To share knowledge and experience with scientists
To improve new methods and tools
To support interdisciplinary studies in natural sciences
To unserstand life, nature and evolution through scientific basis
Assoc. Prof. Emre KESKİN
I am focussed on molecular phylogenetics and DNA/eDNA barcoding/metabarcoding studies. I also lead the working group on the standardization of genomic techniques used to identify biodiversity in aquatic ecosystems across Europe under the EU DNAqua-Net Action. More
Researcher, Lab. Manager
Esra Mine ÜNAL, MSc
Currently I am working on plant barcoding and environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding studies of eGL which is the first of our dreams that we have started and realized with our first COST project in 2014. Now I am a PhD student in Ankara University Biotechnology Institute. More
Metehan Arıkan, Bsc
My research interests are population genetics and evolutionary biology.I specifically interest in evolutionary dynamics.
Berkay Gülen, BSc
I am working at eGL to understand and determine the evolutionary processes of indicator species using the eDNA metabarcoding by combining evolutionary genetics with molecular phylogenetics and biogeography.
