Daniel L. Hartl

Dr. Daniel Hartl is the Professor of Biology in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard. His laboratory studies population genomics and genetics as well as molecular evolution. He has been awarded the Thomas Hunt Morgan Medal of the Genetics Society of America and is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences USA as well as the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Hartl's Ph.D. is from the University of Wisconsin, and he did postdoctoral studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Danny served on the faculties of Purdue University, the University of Minnesota, and Washington University Medical School in St. Louis. In addition to 450 scientific articles, Hartl has co-authored or authored over 35 different books.

A Primer of Population Genetics and Genomics 4th edition (PDF) has been completely updated and revised to provide a comprehensive yet concise introduction to the basic concepts of population genetics and genomics.

Recent textbooks have tended to specialize in areas such as coalescent, molecular evolution, human population genetics, or genomics.
This primer deviates from that trend by encouraging a broader familiarity and understanding of population genetics and genomics in general.
From mating systems to the causes of evolution, molecular population genetics, and the genomics of complex traits, the overview covers it all.
Discussions of ancient DNA, gene drive, landscape genetics, identifying risk factors for complex diseases, adaptation and speciation genomics, and other active areas of current research are intertwined.

Numerous examples from a wide range of animals, plants, microbes, and human populations illuminate the principles. The method also emphasizes doing, which in this case means solving numerical or conceptual problems. The reasoning behind this is that using concepts in problem-solving leads to greater understanding and longer knowledge retention. This approachable introductory textbook is intended primarily for students of various levels and abilities (from senior undergraduate to postgraduate), as well as practicing scientists in population genetics, evolutionary biology, ecology, computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, physics, and mathematics.

  1. Kasha Janosik

    If you stand right at the edge of the night sky, some place where one o’clock leaves to meet two, the breeze will carry your words up to the stars. And they’ll swallow your secrets until its time to hand them over to the truths in the sky- the ones that draw maps in the black. They carve their answers into the backs of my hands, the grooves of the words running deep in my palms.
