The massive research effort known as the Human Genome Project is an attempt to record the sequence of the three trillion nucleotides that make up the human genome and to identify individual genes within this sequence. The description and classification of sequences is heavily dependent on mathematical and statistical models. This short textbook presents a brief description of several ways in which mathematics and statistics are being used in genome analysis and sequencing.
