"What underlying forces are responsible for the observed patterns of variability, given a collection of DNA sequences?" In approaching this question a number of probability models are introduced and anyalyzed.Throughout the book, the theory is developed in close connection with data from more than 60 experimental studies that illustrate the use of these results.

Given a collection of DNA sequences, what underlying forces are responsible for the observed patterns of variability? This book introduces and analyzes a number of probability models: the Wright-Fisher model, the coalescent, the infinite alleles model, and the infinite sites model. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
