Undergraduate Mathematical Biology: From the Classroom to Research
Mathematical Biology provides a wonderful avenue for undergraduate mathematics majors and quantitatively-inclined majors in the biological sciences to become actively involved with research projects. We describe how beginning mathematics courses, such as a yearlong biocalculus sequence can be used to introduce students to mathematical biology and the mathematical and computational tools needed to study biological problems from a quantitative perspective. We illustrate with several examples of course activities, typically using computational software and show how the level of sophistication increases through the course sequence. We then give examples of research results completed in collaboration with undergraduate students who have completed this course sequence. The research work we will discuss comes from the areas of integrated pest management and the dynamics of gene regulatory networks.
