With the rapid progress made in recent years in the study of evolution at the molecular level, this book summarizes new developments and seeks to unify studies of evolutionary histories of organisms and the mechanisms of evolution into a single science - molecular evolutionary genetics.
Provides the most up-to-date general account of the methods and theoretical principles needed to analyze information on variation and evolution at the molecular level and to interpret this information in the light of models of evolutionary changes in the genetic composition of populations. . . . An invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers.
