Abstract: 

The Milne Lecture will replace the Colloquium. Please also look at the Milne Lecture events under News and Events on the Mathematics Department webpage.

Beginning in the 1970s the ability to read DNA sequences has dramatically increased. This general lecture will describe some of that development with attention on mathematical and statistical aspects. After the Human Genome Project new technologies (known as Next Generation Sequencing ) have been developed. NGS has impacted the approaches to solve some basic problems that were previously considered solved.
