About this book

This volume presents a selection of pioneering research studies in which molecular techniques have been used to address key questions, for example about the human genetic system, the geographical movements of human populations in the past, and primate evolution. Providing not only a timely overview of current research, this book also presents an insight into the potential significance of molecular biology in the decades to come, that will be of interest to all biological anthropologists as well as molecular biologists, human geneticists, palaeontologists and evolutionary biologists.
