|Population genetics is also the most widely misused area of human genetics, sometimes bordering on "vigilante genetics," a term coined by Newton Morton. Persons have mistakenly applied population genetics to "prove" race superiority for intelligence and aptitudes, and have misused it in eugenics.

It is largely concerned with the study of polymorphisms. It directly impacts counseling, forensic medicine, and genetic screening.
