About this book

Phylogenomics: A Primer introduces undergraduate and graduate students to the field of phylogenomics, the discipline that integrates evolutionary biology and genomics. Phylogenomics: A Primer presents an overview of the interlinking aspects of molecular biology, systematics, and bioinformatics; describes phylogenomic techniques such as PCR, CLUSTAL, and neighbor joining; and provides guidelines for navigating relevant databases such as GenBank, BLAST, and EDGAR.

In a clear and readable style, it explains the essential concepts underlying homology, sequence alignment, parsimony analysis, maximum likelihood, Bayesian inference, population genetics, genome-wide association studies, tree building, and DNA barcoding. The inclusion of problem-solving exercises in each chapter provides students with a solid grasp of the important molecular and evolutionary questions facing modern biologists as well as the tools needed to answer them.
