Every year for the last few years I have given a talk on the “Evolution of DNA Sequencing” at the “Workshop in Applied Phylogenetics” at Bodega Bay Marine Lab. I just did the talk and thought I would post the slides here. I note – I also added an evolutionary tree of sequencing methods which I include here as a separate animated gif too.
I note I posted a request to Twitter the day before the talk pointing to last years slides and I got lots of helpful suggestions from people about what to add or change. I included links to Tweets in the talk and thanked those people on the slides. But I would like to thank everyone here too. Published originally on March 10, 2015. Updated 10/20/15 with information below and republished. Finally posted the video of the talk (recorded using Camtasia) to Youtube. It is imperfect (there are a few things I said that came out wrong .. it was late at night). But since it may be helpful to people I am posting it.

just my 2 cents- not really the focus of your talk, but i always thought that chargaff deserved more credit for his depurinated and depyrimidated degradation analyses- discovered the underrepresentation of CpGs, other stuff, e.g. Shapiro and Chargaff 1957 BBA (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0006300257901075). (i know it's elsevier don't hurt me). substantially earlier than maxam/gilbert, crucial to the idea that sequence had meaning.
this is great, i wish that people spent more time thinking about the origins of ideas/techniques.
thanks — will check it out
