Biologists are increasingly using mathematical tools to aid in research. These problems explore different biological contexts where maths has an important contribution to make.
Do you know which birds are regular visitors where you live?
Build a mini eco-system, and collect and interpret data on how well the plants grow under different conditions.
Is this eco-system sustainable?
When a habitat changes, what happens to the food chain?
How would you go about estimating populations of dolphins?
Simple models which help us to investigate how epidemics grow and die out.
This article explores how researchers in disease dynamics are using mathematics to understand how the influenza virus replicates.
The human genome is represented by a string of around 3 billion letters. To deal with such large numbers, genome sequencing relies on clever algorithms. This article investigates.
