Book News Annotation:

Covering topics from a-thalassemia to zygote, Jobling (genetics, U. of Leicester and colleagues at other UK universities discuss the importance of studying human genomic variation from an evolutionary perspective. In a nicely illustrated presentation including species comparison data and color distribution maps, they introduce principles and still-contested issues in the field to multi- disciplinary students and researchers. While their approach is not primarily historical, a timeline is provided of landmarks in genetics and human evolution.

Synopsis:

This text brings together molecular genetics and genomics to the study of the origins and movements of human populations. It describes the molecular basis of human genetic variation and the mechanisms which give rise to it and introduces the principles behind the use of molecular genetic data.

Synopsis:

Human Evolutionary Genetics is a groundbreaking text which for the first time brings together molecular genetics and genomics to the study of the origins and movements of human populations.

Starting with an overview of molecular genomics for the non-specialist (which can be a useful review for those with a more genetic background), the book shows how data from the post-genomic era can be used to examine human origins and the human colonisation of the planet, richly illustrated with genetic trees and global maps. For the first time in a textbook, the authors outline how genetic data and the understanding of our origins which emerges, can be applied to contemporary population analyses, including genealogies, forensics and medicine.
