Biomathematics: the great frontier of the 21st century?

Biomathematics: the great frontier of the 21st century?

Biological systems are hugely complex, but simple mathematical models can isolate and elucidate key elements and processes and predict crucial aspects of behaviour. Many problems in biology have been solved using mathematics already developed in other areas – network analysis, group theory, differential equations, probability, chaos theory and combinatorics – but completely new mathematical techniques may be required to solve some tough problems in the life sciences.
