Michael Lynch (born 1951) is Distinguished Professor of Evolution, Population Genetics and Genomics at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. Besides many highly acclaimed papers, especially in population genetics, he has written a two volume textbook with Bruce Walsh, widely considered the "Bible" of quantitative genetics. He has been a major force in promoting neutral theories to explain genomic architecture based on the effects of population sizes in different lineages; he presented this point of view comprehensively in his 2007 book "The Origins of Genome Architecture". In 2009, he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences (Evolutionary Biology). Lynch was a Biology undergraduate at St. Bonaventure University and received a B.S. in 1973. He obtained his PhD from the University of Minnesota (Ecology and Behavioral Biology) in 1977.
