In many respects, biology is the new frontier for applied mathematicians. This
book demonstrates the important role mathematics plays in the study of some
biological problems. It introduces mathematicians to the biological sciences
and provides enough mathematics for bioscientists to appreciate the utility of
the modelling approach.

The book presents a number of diverse topics, such as neurophysiology, cell
biology, immunology, and human genetics. It examines how research is done, what
mathematics is used, what the outstanding questions are, and how to enter the
field. Also given is a brief historical survey of each topic, putting current
research into perspective.

The book is suitable for mathematicians and biologists interested in
mathematical methods in biology.
