Computational Molecular Evolution

Ziheng Yang


The field of molecular evolution has experienced explosive growth in recent years due to the rapid accumulation of genetic sequence data, continuous improvements to computer hardware and software, and the development of sophisticated analytical methods. The increasing availability of large genomic data sets requires powerful statistical methods to analyse and interpret them, generating both computational and conceptual challenges for the field. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of modern statistical and computational methods used in molecular evolutionary analysis, such as maximum li ... More

Keywords: genetic sequence data, computer hardware, analytical methods, genomic data sets, statistical methods, computational methods, molecular evolutionary analysis, maximum likelihood, Bayesian statistics
