About the Authors
  • The recent revolution in molecular genetics, which has already made such a significant impact in the biomedical sciences, is now becoming established in biological anthropology. New techniques have enabled anthropologists to study biological variation at the molecular level, and a wealth of exciting information on human and non-human primate populations is now becoming available for the first time. This volume presents a selection of pioneering research studies in which molecular techniques have been used to address key questions, for example about the human genetic system, the geographical movements of human populations in the past, and primate evolution. Providing not only a timely overview of current research, this book also presents an insight into the potential significance of molecular biology in the decades to come, that will be of interest to all biological anthropologists as well as molecular biologists, human geneticists, palaeontologists and evolutionary biologists.
