Anthropological Genetics : Theory, Methods and Applications, Hardback Book

Anthropological Genetics : Theory, Methods and Applications Hardback

Edited by Michael H. Crawford


Anthropological genetics is a field that has been in existence since the 1960s and has been growing within medical schools and academic departments, such as anthropology and human biology, ever since.

With the recent developments in DNA and computer technologies, the field of anthropological genetics has been redefined.

This volume deals with the molecular revolution and how DNA markers can provide insight into the processes of evolution, the mapping of genes for complex phenotypes and the reconstruction of the human diaspora.

In addition to this, there are explanations of the technological developments and how they affect the fields of forensic anthropology and population studies, alongside the methods of field investigations and their contribution to anthropological genetics.

This book brings together leading figures from the field to provide an introduction to anthropological genetics, aimed at advanced undergraduates to professionals, in genetics, biology, medicine and anthropology.
