A mathematical way to think about biology

A mathematical way to think about biology comes to life in this lavishly illustrated video book. After completing these videos, students will be better prepared to collaborate in physical sciences-biology research. These lessons demonstrate a physical sciences perspective: training intuition by deriving equations from graphical illustrations.

“Excellent site for both basic and advanced lessons on applying mathematics to biology.”
