en Limba Engleză Hardback – 04 Jan 2016

This book describes the driving forces behind the evolutionary process at the molecular and genome levels, the effects of the various molecular mechanisms on the structure of genes, proteins, and genomes, the methodology and the analytical tools involved in dealing with molecular data from an evolutionary perspective, and the logic of evolutionary hypothesis testing. Evolutionary phenomena at the molecular level are detailed in a way that can be understood without much prerequisite knowledge of molecular biology, evolution, or mathematics. Numerous examples that support and clarify the theoretical arguments and methodological discussions are included.

Importantly, this book goes beyond an overview of the current status of the field. By explaining the fundamental concepts of population genetics, which is essential to understanding molecular evolution, Graur gives his readers the necessary tools for a critical analysis of the different topics covered by his volume. Readers afraid of mathematical formulas should not be discouraged by the equations present throughout the book, as the mathematical concepts are clearlyexplained and illustrated... This book is a must read for anyone lacking the molecular evolution background necessary to make sense of the current deluge of molecular data and, more generally, for anyone trying to keep up to date with the fast moving field of molecular and genome evolution. -Jean-Francois Gout, The Quarterly Review of Biology
