9780128012130: Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Methods for Modern Biology

Written by expert authors in both mathematics and biology, Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Methods for Modern Biology offers a bridge between math and biology and provides a framework for simulating, analyzing, predicting, and modulating the behavior of complex biological systems. Each chapter begins with a question from modern biology, followed by the description of certain mathematical methods and theory appropriate in the search of answers. Every topic gives readers a fast-track pathway through the problem by presenting the biological foundation, covering the relevant mathematical theory, and highlighting connections between them. Multiple exercises and projects are embedded in each chapter. Many of the projects and exercises utilize specialized software, providing students with much-needed familiarity and experience with computing applications, critical components of the "modern biology" skill set. Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Methods for Modern Biology is appropriate for mathematics courses such as finite mathematics, discrete structures, linear algebra, abstract/modern algebra, graph theory, probability, bioinformatics, statistics, biostatistics, and modeling, as well as for biology courses such as genetics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology, and evolution. * Examines significant questions in modern biology and their mathematical treatments* Presents important mathematical concepts, methods, and tools in the context of essential biology* Features material of interest to students in both mathematics and biology* Presents chapters in modular format so topics taught in class need not follow the Table of Contents* Provides students with many examples and exercises to enhance comprehension* Introduces projects appropriate for undergraduate research * Utilizes freely accessible specialized software for visualization, simulation, and analysis in modern biology.* Employs concepts from moderns discrete mathematics and abstract algebra, which do not require calculus as a prerequisite.

Product Description:

Inspired by the national initiative toward a 'new biology,' Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Methods for Modern Biology offers a collection of modules introducing methods from modern discrete mathematics into the undergraduate math and biology curricula. Each module begins with a question from contemporary biology, followed by the description of mathematical methods and theory appropriate for the search of answers. Projects and exercises embedded in the text utilize freely-accessible or widely-available software for visualization, simulation, and analysis used in modern biology research. This book is appropriate for mathematics courses such as finite mathematics, discrete structures, linear algebra, abstract/modern algebra, graph theory, probability, bioinformatics, statistics, biostatistics, and modeling, as well as for biology courses such as genetics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology, and evolution. The companion website includes solutions to all exercises and additional materials including tutorials, projects, data sets, and computer code. * Examines significant questions in modern biology and their mathematical treatments* Presents important concepts and methods from discrete mathematics in the context of essential biology* Features material appropriate for both mathematics and biology courses* Presents chapters in modular format so coverage does not need to follow the Table of Contents* Introduces projects appropriate for undergraduate research * Requires no calculus as a prerequisite

About the Author:

Raina Robeva was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. She has a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Virginia and has led multiple NSF-funded curriculum development projects at the interface of mathematics and biology. She is the lead author of the textbook An Invitation to Biomathematics (2008) and the lead editor of the volume Mathematical Concepts and Methods in Modern Biology: Using Modern Discrete Models (2013), both published by Academic Press. Robeva is the founding Chief Editor of the research journal Frontiers in Systems Biology. She is a Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Sweet Briar College and lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
