About this book

This is an introduction for biologists to DAMBE, a proprietary, user-friendly computer program for molecular data analysis. The combination of this book and software will allow biologists not only to understand the rationale behind a variety of computational tools in molecular biology and evolution, but also to gain instant access to these tools for use in their laboratories.
