SIAM Activity Group on Life Sciences

This activity group was established to foster the application of mathematics to the life sciences and research in mathematics that leads to new methods and techniques useful in the life sciences. The life sciences have become quantitative as new technologies facilitate collection and analysis of vast amounts of data ranging from complete genomic sequences of organisms to satellite imagery of forest landscapes on continental scales. Computers enable the study of complex models of biological processes. The activity group brings together researchers who seek to develop and apply mathematical and computational methods in all areas of the life sciences. It provides a forum that cuts across disciplines to catalyze mathematical research relevant to the life sciences and rapid diffusion of advances in mathematical and computational methods.
