An Introduction to Molecular Anthropology
September 2015, Wiley-Blackwell
Filling a unique and unmet need for introductory molecular anthropology texts, An Introduction to Molecular Anthropology covers basic genetic concepts, such as what genes are, what they do, and how they are inherited. Organized into three major sections, chapters build from basic genetic and evolutionary concepts to using genetics to make inferences about culture and molecular anthropology in the genomics age. This essential primer in genetics and molecular anthropology is suitable as a supplemental resource, a stand-alone text, and an introduction and reference for professionals.
