Pattern and process in human genetic diversity: from genomes to populations

This Wellcome-funded Senior Fellowship project (2004-2009) built directly upon work in our previous project 'The Y chromosome as a marker for the history and structure of human populations', aiming to:

This work aimed to illuminate the fundamental processes of mutation, conversion and recombination, and show how these interact with population processes to pattern human genetic diversity.

For publications emerging so far from this project, please see our main web-page. This project formed the basis for a follow-up Senior Fellowship project, Sex, genomes, history: molecular, evolutionary and cultural effects on human genetic diversity.


This project was funded by the Wellcome Trust.
