I would like to thank the guest editors for the special section on Phylogenetics, Daniel H. Huson, Vincent Moulton, and Mike Steel, for the wonderful job they have done in putting together this collection of papers by participants of the Phylogenetic Program at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. I also want to thank them for providing more than their organizational and editorial expertise, coauthoring and submitting five additional papers on phylogenetics that complement the contents of the special section. These additional papers were submitted to TCBB as regular papers and handled by regular TCBB editors. I am very pleased that TCBB is able publish the regular papers along with the special section, combining all of these papers on the theme of phylogenetics into a single physical issue.
