About the Authors
Kevin Miller holds Degrees in Physiology and a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Anthropology from Magdalene College, Cambridge, UK. He works at North Louisiana Criminalistics Laboratory, DNA Section, 1115 Brooks Street, Shreveport, Louisiana 71101, USA. He was formerly an Asst. Research Scientist with the Marine Science Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and held a joint appointment in the Department of Anthropology .
His research focus has been on the reconstruction of the patterns of prehistoric population movements through the study of nucleotide sequence variation in the mitochondrial DNA control region. Miller is also involved in using both physical and molecular genetic methods to identify human remains in forensic and archaeological contexts.
John Dawson holds a Degree in Mathematics, a Diploma in Computer Science, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from King's College, Cambridge, UK. He has been manager of the Literary and Linguistic Computing Centre of Cambridge University since 1974, and is a recognized authority on all types of text processing by computer.
