I am pleased to welcome Professor David Corne and Dr. Bijoy K. Ghosh to the Editorial Board of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Professor Corne and Dr. Ghosh are experts in several areas of great importance to IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. A short biography of each follows.

David Corne holds a chair position in computer science (from September 2003) at the University of Exeter, United Kingdom, where his group works across the scope of bioalgorithmics, with projects in bioinformatics, evolutionary (and other bioinspired) computing, molecular computing, and directed evolution. Following degrees in mathematics and artficial intelligence (respectively), he was a researcher in the Department of Artificial Intelligence, University of Edinburgh for six years, working first on intelligent design support systems (with Tim Smithers), and then on evolutionary scheduling and timetabling (with Peter Ross and Hsiao-Lan Fang), producing some early and influential ideas and techniques which have since become common in such applications. He moved to the University of Reading in 1995, and built up a track record in various aspects and applications of evolutionary computation, notably, new algorithms and theory in evolutionary multiobjective optimization (with Joshua Knowles), novel observations on evolutionary algorithm dynamics and parameterization (with Martin Oates), new pattern discovery techniques in bioinformatics (with Andrew Meade and Richard Sibly), and new theory and modeling techniques with particular relevance to directed evolution (with Douglas Kell and Martin Oates). At Exeter, he leads a research group on artificial intelligence and emergent technologies, with a subgroup in bioinformatics and biocomputation, and specializes in applications of computational intelligence in the biosciences. He has also published (with various) on applications of evolutionary computation, neural computation, and immune systems methods in cancer radiotherapy, database management, data mining, DNA sequencing, phylogeny, pipeline routing, telecommunications routing, refrigeration system management, and Web intelligence. He is a member of the UK EPSRC Peer Review College, editorial board member for eight journals, steering committee member for two international conference series, and program committee member for approximately six conferences per year.
Bijoy K. Ghosh (S `78-M `79-SM `90-F `00) received the BTech and MTech degrees in electrical and electronics engineering from India in 1977 and 1979, respectively. In 1983, he received the PhD degree in engineering from the Decision and Control Group of the Division and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, Cambridge. Since 1983, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at Washington University, where he is currently a professor and directs the Center for Biocybernetics and Intelligent Systems. Dr. Ghosh's research interests are in multivariable control theory, machine vision, robotics, biological control systems, and systems biology. In 1988, he received the American Automatic Control Council's Donald P. Eckman award in recognition of his outstanding contributions in the field of automatic control. In 2000, he became a fellow of the IEEE for fundamental contributions in systems theory with applications to robust control, vision, and multisensor fusion. In 1993, he was an UNDP consultant under the TOKTEN program and visited the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. In 1997, he received the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Invitation Fellowship for research in Japan and visited Tokyo Denki University and Mechanical Engineering Laboratory, Tsukuba City, Japan. He has also held short term visiting positions at Osaka University, Japan in 1992, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan in 1995, Padova University, Italy in 2001, and Institut Mittag-Leffler, Sweden in 2003. Dr. Ghosh is a permanent visiting professor at the Tokyo Denki University and, in the Spring of 2001, he visited the Electrical Engineering Department at Yale University, New Haven. He is presently an elected member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Control Systems Society and is a committee chair for the technical committee on biosystems and control.
