Provides descriptions of the methods and tools used in molecular population genetics, which has combined advances in molecular biology and genomics with mathematical and empirical findings to uncover the history of natural selection and demographic shifts in many organisms.

  • Focuses on the analysis of DNA sequence data collected from natural populations, reviewing the logic and assumptions behind commonly used methods
  • Covers methods for studying recombination, population structure, natural selection, and demographic history
  • An essential text for understanding the interpretation of molecular variation
