Evolutionary Genetics

Track 3: Evolutionary genetics

Evolutionary genetics is the broad field of studies that resulted from the integration of geneticsand Darwinian evolution, called the modern synthesis. The force of mutation is the ultimate source of new genetic variation within populations. Although most mutations are neutral with no effect on fitness or harmful, some mutations have a small, positive effect on fitness and these variants are raw materials for gradualist adaptive evolution. Within finite populations, random genetic drift and natural selection affect the mutational variation. Natural selection is the only evolutionary force which can produce adaptation, the fit between organism and environment, or conserve genetic states over very long periods of time in the face of the dispersive forces of mutation and drift.

  • Natural selection and adaptation
  • Admixture and ancestry analysis
