Population genetics is the sub-field of genetics concerned with the study of the distribution of alleles in populations. Population geneticists study of the effects of evolutionary processes on allele frequencies, principally variation, selection, genetic drift and migration. The field has developed from the modern synthesis, founded by Sewall Wright, J. B. S. Haldane and Ronald Fisher, and has contributed to the contemporary theories of natural selection (gene selection), genetic drift and speciation.
