Summary
"Adaptive Evolution of Genes and Genomes emphasizes some of the best known cases of positive selection at the molecular level, including immune system genes of vertebrates and genes encoding immunogenic proteins of parasites, to show that our understanding of functional molecular biology can be enhanced through an examination of the selective forces acting on DNA sequences. It will be an invaluable tool for anyone interested or working in molecular or evolutionary biology, and for those studying the implications of our rapidly increasing knowledge of the genomes of organisms."--Jacket
