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.
The Tweets about this really say it all so I am just going to embed them here:
Really disappointed in Oxford Nanopores. Perhaps we can get some of the speakers to cancel on them unless they fix things.

Well, after I posted about the Nanopore meeting there were some responses on Twitter. So I made a Storify
So I decided to check the meeting today to see whether they “fixed” anything.
Right now they list 11 male and two female speakers. So that added two males and two females. Better ratio. Still pretty bad. They really could do better …
