By Eric S. Lander, Michael S. Waterman

During this first-ever survey of the partnership among arithmetic and biology, top specialists examine how mathematical learn and strategies have made attainable vital discoveries in biology. Explores how differential geometry, topology, and differential mechanics have allowed researchers to "wind" and "unwind" DNA's double helix to appreciate the phenomenon of supercoiling. Explains how mathematical instruments are revealing the workings of enzymes and proteins. Describes how mathematicians are detecting echoes from the starting place of existence by way of utilizing the stochastic and statictical idea to the research of DNA sequences.
