ISCB MOURNS THE LOSS OF PETER SELLERS

ISCB mourns the loss of Rockefeller University mathematician Peter Sellers. Sellers was an early contributor to the theory of computing evolutionary distances between nucleotide sequences (PNAS 76(7):3041 1979). Through a four-plus decade career at Rockefeller, Dr. Sellers's research covered numerous problems at the intersection of mathematics and biology. His earliest collaborations with biologists were in the field of biochemical kinetics. Peter was also an accomplished sailor, who designed and built his own sailboat.
