Lecture notes from my graduate course in population genetics. Topics covered include basic principles of Hardy-Weinberg, population structure, drift, mutation, selection, quantitatitve genetics, molecular evolution, and phylogeography.

Please contact me if you find errors or places where the explanations are unclear or incomplete.

The first link below will take you to the course website. The second will take you to a Github repository in which you'll find the LaTeX source and associated files needed to produce the PDF that you find here. The notes are currently in revision, so if you run LaTeX on the files from the main Github repository, you'll find differences from the version that's posted here.The final link is to a release on Github (v1.0) that will provide a ZIP file (or a gzipped tar ball) of the files used to produce this PDF.

A complete new version will be done by May or June, 2015. It will be released as v2.0, and I'll post a new PDF corresponding to that version.
