- Rapid progress in the field of population genetics, in particular advances in DNA sequencing technology, calls for an up-to-speed textbook that is appropriate for current researchers and students. Molecular Population Genetics, by Matthew Hahn (2018), is an informative and entertaining text that attempts to satisfy this demand. Although it has notable shortcomings and does not replace current texts for undergraduate courses, this book is a worthwhile resource for almost any researcher analyzing population genetic data and is a must-have for graduate student reading lists.
