A key pro- Current approaches to population genetics focus on evo- cedure in the new genomics is to compare a variable that is lutionary information extracted from genomics, where subject to natural selection with a control variable sup- large-scale sequencing is telling us much about the oper- posedly unaffected in this way, typically nonsynonymous ation of natural selection. Within this ﬁeld an important compared with synonymous nucleotide substitution issue is the nature and evolution of genetic dominance.
