Evolution and Applications

Edited by David B. Goldstein and Christian Schlotterer

Microsatellites are short stretches of repeated DNA that show exceptional variability in humans and most other species. This has made microsatellites the genetic marker of choice for most applications, including genetic mapping and studies of evolutionary connections between species and populations. This book details the molecular processes which give rise to microsatellite DNA and then describes the wide range of applications.
