Read Human Evolutionary Genetics: Origins, Peoples and Disease by Mark A. Jobling Online


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 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....

    ich habe mir dieses buch für das fach anthropologie in meinem masterstudium der biologie gekauft. ich habe mich mit diesem buch auch für die prüfung vorbereitet. eine bessere vorbereitung hätte ich nicht haben können. es ist alles sehr gut beschrieben. auch die zusätzlichen informationen in den blauen "boxen" sind sehr interessant und lesenswert. allerdings ist das buch wahrscheinlich etwas veraltet, sodass ich die neuere auflage empfehlen würde.

    es handelt sich hierbei um ein Englischprachiges Lehrbuch der evolutionären Genetik. Wer in dem Feld arbeitet, wird damit sehr zufrieden sein. Es verfügt über sehr gut aufgebaute und durchdachte Kapitel und bietet sich durchaus zum lernen und nachschlagen an.Aber definitiv etwas für insider.

    This is my 1st Kindle product and I am using the PC client and not the hardware. Actually this is a textbook for my next U. quarter.I am happy to get this book so quickly and not having to wait for a hard copy to be shipped. The discounted price from the $100 list price is OK too!However, limitations of the format is not being able to cut and past, and not being able to print pages etc.=========Well Oct. 28 2011, it is no longer offered as a Kindle book, but now the PC Kindle version allows copy and pasting of text, which helps in writing papers etc. I still think this book is good and one of a kind and I used for a class on the Anthropology of genetic Diseases as a reference to supplement journal papers on specific topics.

    You dont need to know technical Biology terms to enjoy it. Its a great book to enjoy, so I wont spoil the content.

    Clearly laid out like one of the classic undergraduate textbooks (e.g. Genes VII, Albers et al.), this is the only up-to-date introduction in the field.The authors make great efforts to link advances in genetics to other fields (e.g. linguistics, anthropology), as well as to organise chapters around key issues such as the spread of agriculture, offering space to key authors in these associated fields. Bibliographic/website sources are also well documented.Evidently, coverage is broad rather than deep, but if you need some basic background (e.g. I wanted to understand how Y-chromosome sequence data illuminated prehistoric migrations but needed some basic information on microsatellites) before proceeding to original papers, then this is the book for you.

    I ordered this book when I first began my research using DNA markers. I found it very easy to read and highly informative, even beyond my own interests. It's a great reference to have around and a must read for anyone working in the field of human genetics, both from a clinical or academic perspective. Its organization lends it suitable for a good textbook in an advanced evolutionary genetics course as well.
