In this issue, I announce the retirement of Professor Mike Steel who has been on the editorial board of TCBB since the end of 2008. He has contributed so much to make TCBB function and thrive and I would therefore like to express my very warm appreciation for his service and support.
I am happy to welcome the addition to the editorial board of TCBB of Professor Tatsuya Akutsu from the Bioinformatics Center of the Institute for Chemical Research, Kyoto University, Japan; Professor Rolf Backofen, chair for Bioinformatics at the University of Freiburg, Institute of Computer Science, Germany; Assistant Professor Michael Brudno from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; Principal Researcher in Statistical Bioinformatics Dirk Husmeier from Biomathematics & Statistics Scotland, Edinburgh, Scotland; Professor Sushmita Mitra, head of the Machine Intelligence Unit at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India; Professor Vincent Moulton, director of the Computational Biology Laboratory, School of Computing Sciences, University of East Anglia, United Kingdom; Professor Ora Schueler-Furman from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel; Professor Charles Semple from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand; and Professor Jörg Stelling from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland. I am very much looking forward to working with them alongside the remaining Associate Editors in the coming years.
Further editorial board nominations will be announced in the next issues of TCBB.
