Coalescent Theory

The coalescent has been proven to be a powerful tool in ancestral population genetics. It provides a mathematical method to study the ancestral history of (a sample of) particles, individuals, genes or DNA-sequences chosen from a large population. What the normal distribution is for statisticians is the coalescent for geneticists. An efficient method to collect more information about the coalescent is to present a list of links to people working on coalescent theory.
