Science in society:

Deadinburgh biomaths

Mathematical skills are essential to solving problems scientifically. Maths is used in every area of science from epidemiological modelling to disease diagnosis and chemical calculations. To deal with disease outbreaks, scientists need to draw on the tools provided by mathematics and statistics to analyse data and decide on appropriate responses.

We have a strategic commitment to raise the mathematical and computational skills of biologists at all levels and these resources aim to foster an interest in the use of maths in the biosciences.
