The origins of genome architecture by Michael Lynch( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With official genomic blueprints now available for hundreds of species, and thousands more expected in the near future, the field of biology has been forever transformed. Such readily accessible data have encouraged the proliferation of adaptive arguments for the evolution of gene and genomic features, often with little or no attention being given to simpler and more powerful alternative explanations. By integrating the central observations from molecular biology and population genetics relevant to comparative genomics, Lynch shows why the details matter. Presented in a nontechnical fashion, at both the population-genetic and molecular-genetic levels, this book offers a unifying explanatory framework for how the peculiar architectural diversity of eukaryotic genomes and genes came to arise. Under Lynch's hypothesis, the genome-wide repatterning of eukaryotic gene structure, which resulted primarily from nonadaptive processes, provided an entirely novel resource from which natural selection could secondarily build new forms of organismal complexity
Genetics and analysis of quantitative traits by Michael Lynch( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first of a two-volume set on the theoretical and empirical applications of quantitative genetics focuses on the basic biology and methods of analysis of quantitative characters. The authors endeavor to develop central theoretical concepts from first principles. They also outline basic principles of complex pedigree analysis. The extensive appendices include reviews of the statistical tools used in the book. Designed for use as a textbook or a basic reference
