  1. I am a math teacher.  Where can I find some good review material to catch up on what my students should know about genetics?

    Kathy Gabric has an excellent site What Every Math Teacher Should Know About Biology.

  2. I am a biology teacher.  Where can I find some good discrete math problems to go over with my students to help them with this?

    Rob Hochberg's Brief Introduction to Some Discrete Mathematical Concepts.

  4. What is biomathematics?

    Modern biology has changed dramatically in the past two decades. Driven by large scientific endeavors such as the human genome project, it has become very much an information science, closely tied to tools and methods of the mathematical sciences. New algorithms and mathematical models played a central role in sequencing the human genome and continue to play a crucial role as biology develops models of information processing in biological organisms. Bio-mathematics is concerned with information processing in biology at all levels, from the molecular to the cell to the organ to the organism to the "system." Bio-mathematics also involves the use of mathematical reasoning to study problems in the spread of disease, growth of populations, changes in ecological systems, etc.

  5. What is DIMACS?

    DIMACS is the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science.  For more information, click here, or visit the DIMACS website.
