The LMCB houses undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral scholars and visiting researchers who share an interest in mathematics and biology. The students are mostly based in the mathematics department with other represented departments including computer science, statistics, molecular & cellular biology and bioengineering.
The mathematics department offers two courses in mathematical and computational biology:
- Mathematical and Computational Methods in Molecular Biology (Math 127). This is an upper-division undergraduate course that introduces students to mathematical and computational problems arising in the context of molecular biology.
- Discrete Mathematics for the Life Sciences (Math 239). This is a graduate courses focused on applications of algebra and statistics to biology.
In addition to these courses, we organize a weekly seminar series
