Also, he didn't seem to take a kitchen-sink approach, a few themes came in for thorough treatment. The starting point for population genetics is the Hardy-Weinberg theorem. Population genetics as a scientific discipline makes use of mathematics and the principles of neo-Darwinism to try to understand how genetic variation spreads through populations and influences their evolution. Actually, I say “basic principles”, but what I mean is “basic principle”, because there's only one: every method for detecting positive selection tries to identify alleles which have gone up in frequency unusually fast. CrashCourse Biology #18 Hank talks about population genetics, which helps to explain the evolution of populations over time by combing the principles of Mendel and Darwin, and by means of the Hardy-Weinberg equation. Concerning blind spots I have pointed out some limitations of current population genetics. We knew this in principle from population genetics theory, and from a lot of data we already had. Mutational burden hypothesis (MBH), which is mostly based on population genetics principles, is a unifying concept that attempts to reconcile different points of view. Also, we are seeing again that non-coding variants could be important. The various concepts and principles that are used in Population Genetics are. Well, that's not new, and no surprise. Hartl DL and Clark AG (2006) Principles of Population Genetics, Fourth Edition. In population genetics, genetic drift is the phenomenon of change in the frequency of alleles (variants of a gene) in a population of organisms due to chance or random events. Conservation Biology: Evolution in Action. My arguments were based on basic principles of evolution and population genetics. I have recently criticized British geneticist Steve Jones for his claim that modern human societies are no longer subject to natural selection.
