What is Biomathematics?
The field of Biomathematics, sometimes also called mathematical or theoretical biology, is an interdisciplinary field of scientific research which aims to address questions which arise from biological systems using appropriate mathematical and computational theory. Biological systems and processes are typically represented as mathematical models whose behavior can be further analyzed and understood through theoretical and numerical examination using a variety of mathematical techniques and theories.
The types of biological systems that have been examined within the field of biomathematics are wide and varied including everything from the human genome to population level genetics, from cancer cells to ecologically invasive species, from the immune system to regional and global epidemics, and countless other applications.
Though the use of mathematics has long been employed in the biological sciences, more recent research in biology (including the field of medicine) has increasingly become intertwined and dependent on mathematics and computation, in many cases driving innovation and development of new mathematical techniques and theories.
To address some of the most significant biological questions of 21st century, the next generation of researchers will need strong backgrounds in both biology and mathematics, and the ability to translate between these two fields. The Biomathematics degree is offered at Rhodes College.
