Sam Karlin: A personal appreciation
In the 1960s Karlin and Bodmer established an active programme in mathematical population genetics with NIH support that, in turn, supported the work of Ewens and Feldman with Karlin. Subsequently Karlin established a similar programme in Israel. The overall contributions of Karlin to population genetics and molecular biology are briefly reviewed from a personal perspective. © 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
