In this talk, Blath will discuss some of the basic probabilistic concepts and results from mathematical population genetics. After an introduction to the field, he will present some recent research on the role of "dormant states" in population genetics, which seem to play an important role as a survival strategy of microbial communities, leading to interesting new mathematical objects and predictions for the qualitative and quantitative interplay of evolutionary forces.

Jochen Blath is a professor for stochastic processes and their applications at the TU Berlin. His areas of research include measurevalued diffusions, interacting particle systems and probabilistic structures in evolution.
