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.

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.
