The Jukes-Cantor Model of Molecular Evolution
Erickson, Keith
PRIMUS, v20 n5 p438-445 2010
The material in this module introduces students to some of the mathematical tools used to examine molecular evolution. This topic is standard fare in many mathematical biology or bioinformatics classes, but could also be suitable for classes in linear algebra or probability. While coursework in matrix algebra, Markov processes, Monte Carlo simulation, and/or basic biology will greatly assist student understanding, more time can be devoted to introduce these topics in class depending on student background.
