An Introduction to Population Genetics - Rasmus Nielsen and Montgomery Slatkin

Special Features

  • A comprehensive guide to the field - this text provides students with an accessible resource rather than having them piece together information from books, reviews, and primary research articles.
  • Focuses on the analysis of DNA sequence data collected from natural populations, reviewing the logic and assumptions behind commonly used methods.
  • Covers the methods and tools used in the field to study recombination, population structure, natural selection, and demographic history.
  • A key resource for understanding the interpretation of molecular variation, this text provides an introduction to the basic ways in which molecular variation is summarized. (Ch. 3)
