Devoted to the collection, interpretation and analysis of population genetic data, topics included here include studies on human evolutionary history, molecular techniques for generating data, statistical and computational techniques for the interpretation of such data, and stochastic models for genealogy and population structure. The book reflects the close interaction between experimental molecular biologists and theoreticians, and as such will be useful for specialists in the area, as well as mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists and biologists wanting a brief overview of current problems in the field.
