Phylogenetics by likelihood: Evolutionary modeling as a tool for understanding the genome
Molecular evolutionary studies provide a means of investigating how cells function and how organisms adapt to their environment. The products of evolutionary studies provide medically important insights to the source of major diseases, such as HIV, and hold the key to understand the developing immunity of pathogenic bacteria to antibiotics. They have also helped mankind understand its place in nature, casting light on the selective forces and environmental conditions that resulted in modern humans. The use of likelihood as a framework for statistical modeling in phylogenetics has played a fundamental role in studying molecular evolution, enabling rigorous
