In this issue, I announce the retirement of 12 Associate Editors of TCBB: Phil Bourne, Gary Fogel, Nir Friedman, Mark Gerstein, Simon Kasif, Arthur Lesk, Michal Linial, Webb Miller, Bernard Moret, Joe Nadeau, Donna Slonim, and Jane Fridlyand.
It would be impossible for TCBB to function and thrive without the tremendous work of associate editors such as these. Moreover, the first 11 retiring Associate Editors listed were on the inaugural editorial board and can be rightfully proud of having helped in the establishment and success of TCBB. It has been a real pleasure and an honor to work with all of the retiring Associate Editors. I express my great appreciation for their service and support.
IEEE has a tradition of turning over the editorial boards on its journals more frequently than many other journals do. This allows additional members of the community to serve, to bring in new strengths and perspectives, and it minimizes the burden put on volunteers who serve generously on IEEE journals. In the upcoming year, a number of new Associate Editors will be introduced. Today, I welcome the addition of Professor Yi Pan of Georgia State University to the editorial board.
Dan Gusfield, Editor-in-Chief
Yi Pan received the BEng and MEng degrees in computer engineering from Tsinghua University, China, in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1991. He is the chair and a professor in the Department of Computer Science and a professor in the Department of Computer Information Systems at Georgia State University. Dr. Pan's research interests include parallel and distributed computing, networks, and bioinformatics. Dr. Pan has published more than 100 journal papers with 37 papers published in various IEEE journals. In addition, he has published more than 100 papers in refereed conferences.
