In science:

From the point of view of applications, the samples concern not the individuals themselves, but usually some of their genetic material.
Recent progress in coalescent theory
We now come to one of the true cornerstones of mathematical population genetics, which is Ewens’ sampling formula for the allelic partition of Kingman’s coalescent (these terms will be defined in a moment).
Recent progress in coalescent theory
As a result, this formula is widely used in population genetics and in practical studies; its importance and impact are hard to overstate.
Recent progress in coalescent theory
Along with the infinite alleles model, there is a different model for genetic variation, called the infinite sites model.
Recent progress in coalescent theory
