"Understanding Complex Biological Systems with Mathematics" Published and Reviewed
Understanding Complex Biological Systems with Mathematics, published as a result of the MBI Workshop: Women Advancing Mathematical Biology: Understanding Complex Biological Systems with Mathematics, was positively reviewed by Anita T. Layton (University of Waterloo) in the September issue of the SIAM Review. The volume was edited by Ami Radunskaya (Pomona College), Rebecca Segal (Virginia Commonwealth University), and Blerta Shtylla (Pomona College), who were the organizers of the workshop.
Anita T. Layton's review suggests potential audiences for the volume, saying:
"It's an excellent motivating tool for graduate students, who can see the level of productivity that can be achieved in essentially one week if one is 100% focused and works intensively."
The Women Advancing Mathematical Biology workshop assembled teams of women at all stages of their careers to work on a variety of projects during their week at MBI. Understanding Complex Biological Systems with Mathematics summarizes the results of the new research collaborations formed during that week.
