About this book

Presents statistical methods that are useful in the study of molecular evolution, and illustrates how to use them in actual data analysis. It is appropriate for graduate students and researchers (assuming a basic knowledge of evolution, molecular biology, and elementary statistics), allowing many investigators to incorporate refined statistical analysis of large-scale data in their own work.
