This book describes the dynamics of evolutionary change at the molecular level, the driving forces behind the evolutionary process, the effects of the various molecular mechanisms on the structure of genes, proteins, and genomes, the methodology involved in dealing with molecular data from an evolutionary perspective, and the logic of molecular hypothesis testing. The second edition incorporates newly acquired evolutionary insight from genome projects involving bacteria, plants, and animals, as well as analytical tools that have been developed and perfected in the last decade, and has been brought up to date in line with the many advances in genomics, protein engineering, computational biology, and bioinformatics.The authors explain evolutionary phenomena at the molecular level in a way that can be understood without much prerequisite knowledge of molecular biology, evolution, or mathematics. Both mathematical and intuitive explanations are provided, and examples that support and clarify the many theoretical arguments and methodological discussions are included.

Fundamentals of Molecular Evolution. by Wen-Hsiung Li and Dan Graur. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 9 years ago. I have been using this book as a study guide for my qualifying examinations in evolutionary biology & genetics. It is concise and well-illustrated. The citations to original papers are exceptional. The authors do an amazing job of making difficult material seem simple. I'm now considering using this book as the basis for a lecture course.

In this paper we test this prediction by comparing the rate of molecular evolution in two closely related lineages of Hawaiian Drosophila that have experienced very different evolutionary histories. Both lineages belong to the planitibia subgroup of Hawaiian Drosophila. The beta lineage (which includes D. silvestris, D. planitibia, D. differens, and D. hemipeza) has undergone repeated founder events, as evidenced by their geographic distribution and behavioral biology.

Talk about Fundamentals of Molecular Evolution


Steep
Great introductory book to Molecular Evolution. I bought it before attending an international course in the topic and it helped me a lot to understand what the professors and other participants were talking about. The book has some mistakes as other reviewers had mentioned. So don't consider it as the only book you should study to understand Molecular Evolution. Overall it is a good book and I learned a lot from it.
Overall, I am pleased with this book and recommend it. Please let me know if I provided you with useful information with my review. Feel free to ask any questions. I paid full price for this item. This is a honest review and nobody asked me to write it.

GREAT REVIEW

I ordered this to go along with a class on molecular systematics and evolution. So far it has been great. I haven't had a genetics class in a while, but I'm having no trouble following the reading. I'd definately recommend this book to anyone else new to the field of who is looking for a good desk reference.

This is probably one of the best if not the best for beginners. I used this in grad school and reccommend this to all budding molecular evolutionists.
Nejind
Book was in great condition. Love this book actually. There's a lot of typos, but it was written by non native English speakers so what do you expect? My teachers post doc advisor wrote this beauty. If you ever wanna learn about statistical approaches to phylogeny, read this beaut!

I't a required text book. I've been using it for about 3 weeks. It gives good discription for bioinformatics problems.

I have been using this book as a study guide for my qualifying examinations in evolutionary biology & genetics. It is concise and well-illustrated. The citations to original papers are exceptional. The authors do an amazing job of making difficult material seem simple. I'm now considering using this book as the basis for a lecture course. Maybe for those who enjoy crunching equations for hours this is not the best text, but for everyone else who wants practical knowledge that is readily applicable to phylogenetic and bioinformatic research in the field of molecular evolution--I have seen no better text.
The book contains some obvious errors. For example, when describing dynamic programming, the recursive formula is wrong. Another example is on P.162, where it is said that the KA/KS ratio exceeds 100 for conservative genes.

In general, the book briefly touches on a lot of topics. While the book is meant to serve an introductory purpose, some details necessary for understanding the concepts are missing.
