The evolutionary history of species is traditionally represented using a rooted phylogenetic tree. However, when reticulate events such as hybridization, horizontal gene transfer or recombination are believed to be involved, phylogenetic networks that can accommodate non-treelike evolution have an important role to play. This book provides the first interdisciplinary overview of phylogenetic networks. Beginning with a concise introduction to both phylogenetic trees and phylogenetic networks, the fundamental concepts and results are then presented for both rooted and unrooted phylogenetic networks. Current approaches and algorithms available for computing phylogenetic networks from different types of datasets are then discussed, accompanied by examples of their application to real biological datasets. The book also summarises the algorithms used for drawing phylogenetic networks, along with the existing software for their computation and evaluation. All datasets, examples and other additional information and links are available from the book's companion website at www.phylogenetic-networks.org.

This volume contains the papers presented at the 9th Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2005), which was held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on May 14–18, 2005. The RECOMB conference series was started in 1997 by Sorin Istrail, Pavel Pevzner and Michael Waterman. The list of previous meetings is shown below in the s- tion “Previous RECOMB Meetings. ” RECOMB 2005 was hosted by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Boston University’s Center for Advanced - nomic Technology, and was excellently organized by the Organizing Committee Co-chairs Jill Mesirov and Simon Kasif. This year, 217 papers were submitted, of which the Program Committee - lected 39 for presentation at the meeting and inclusion in this proceedings. Each submission was refereed by at least three members of the Program Committee. After the completion of the referees’ reports, an extensive Web-based discussion took place for making decisions. From RECOMB 2005, the Steering Committee decided to publish the proceedings as a volume of Lecture Notes in Bioinf- matics (LNBI) for which the founders of RECOMB are also the editors. The prominent volume number LNBI 3500 was assigned to this proceedings. The RECOMB conference series is closely associated with the Journal of Compu- tional Biology which traditionally publishes special issues devoted to presenting full versions of selected conference papers. The RECOMB Program Committee consistedof42members,aslistedonaseparatepage. Iwouldliketothank the RECOMB 2005 Program Committee members for their dedication and hard work.

An introduction to biological networks and methods for theiranalysis Analysis of Biological Networks is the first book of itskind to provide readers with a comprehensive introduction to thestructural analysis of biological networks at the interface ofbiology and computer science. The book begins with a brief overviewof biological networks and graph theory/graph algorithms and goeson to explore: global network properties, network centralities,network motifs, network clustering, Petri nets, signal transductionand gene regulation networks, protein interaction networks,metabolic networks, phylogenetic networks, ecological networks, andcorrelation networks. Analysis of Biological Networks is a self-containedintroduction to this important research topic, assumes no expertknowledge in computer science or biology, and is accessible toprofessionals and students alike. Each chapter concludes with asummary of main points and with exercises for readers to test theirunderstanding of the material presented. Additionally, an FTP sitewith links to author-provided data for the book is available fordeeper study. This book is suitable as a resource for researchers in computerscience, biology, bioinformatics, advanced biochemistry, and thelife sciences, and also serves as an ideal reference text forgraduate-level courses in bioinformatics and biologicalresearch.
