Randomly) ▪ Drift (diverge pop. randomly) ▪ Migration (Genetic Glue) o Types of DNA ▪ Nuclear (Autosomal and sex chromosomes) ▪ Mitochondrial DNA- fully from mother o Mitochondrial DNA ▪ Provides energy for cellular functions ▪ Circular ▪ 100s to 1000s copies per cell ▪ no recombination or segregation- fully...
