Report summary:

Pooling designs were originally introduced by Dorfman in 1943 as a potential approach to economically screen soldiers with syphilis during World War II. There are many applications such as blood testing, chemical leak testing, codes and DNA screening. In this talk I shall introduce the development on the construction of pooling designs.
