This chapter reviews the major proximate and ultimate sources of genetic variation. It outlines the currently-available methods that can be used to examine these major sources, with an emphasis on molecular genetic methods, such as assays of mutation load and whole-genome association studies. It argues for the necessity of “consilience” between evolutionary psychology and molecular genetics.

Keywords:   genetic variations, molecular genetics, consilience, evolutionary psychology
