The 22nd Turkish National Biology Congress is being held at Osmangazi University in Eskişehir. The conference program includes talks by international invited speakers, oral presentations, poster presentations, and more!

Dr. Ali Dönmez presents the work that he completed during his time researching in the Beilstein lab.
In the late afternoon the opening ceremony began. Here you can see çiğ börek, a sort of turnover filled with meat and onions, being prepared and fried in oil. This cuisine isn't Turkish in origin, instead it's from the Tatars in Crimea. There was a large diaspora of Tatars to Eskişehir over the last few hundred years.
My çiğ börek and the quintessential "water cup", what more could I ask for? How about some şalgam.
The students of Osmangazi University can be seen around the congress helping to set up and organize. They even put on a special concert for the congress during the opening ceremony.
