Professor Sebastien Roch:

Title: Probabilistic Techniques in Mathematical Phylogenetics

I will discuss recent results on connections between the reconstruction problem on spin systems and two important problems in evolutionary biology: the inference of ancestral molecular sequences and the reconstruction of large phylogenies.
