Abstract : This paper is devoted to new results about the scaffolding problem, an integral problem of genome inference in bioinformatics. The problem consists of finding a collection of disjoint cycles and paths covering a particular graph called the “scaffold graph”. We examine the difficulty and the approximability of the scaffolding problem in special classes of graphs, either close to trees, or very dense. We propose negative and positive results, exploring the frontier between difficulty and tractability of computing and/or approximating a solution to the problem.
