Abstract: Hidden Markov models emerged in the late 1960s in the literature of probability and statistics. They were introduced into genetics in the mid-1980s, and shortly after that into biomolecular sequence analysis, now part of what is known as bioinformatics. Their range of applications in that field is now very wide. In this talk I'll describe some examples, including a few with which I have been associated.
