This volume is based on two DIMACS working group meetings on bioconsensus. It provides an introduction and reference to the various aspects of this rapidly developing field. The meetings brought together mathematical and biological scientists to discuss the uses in the biological sciences of methods of consensus and social choice. These two lively meetings contributed much toward establishing the new field of bioconsensus. Yet the book aims to be more than just a report of two meetings. It includes some historical background, as well as a substantial introduction to the axiomatic foundations of the field of bioconsensus and some practical applications of consensus methods to real data. Also included are contributed papers from experts who were not at the meetings.
