Selected papers from WABI2019

New Content ItemEdited by Katharina Huber and Dan Gusfield

Algorithms for Molecular Biology is proud to publish the extended proceedings of WABI 2019. The conference's scope is:

"All research in algorithmic work in bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology. The emphasis is mainly on discrete algorithms and machine-learning methods that address important problems in molecular biology, that are founded on sound models, that are computationally efficient, and that have been implemented and tested in simulations and on real datasets. The goal is to present recent research results, including significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions of future research."

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Guest Editors declare no competing interests.
