Mathematics In The Biotechnology Industry

Still a young industry, biotechnology is playing an increasingly important role in agriculture and healthcare, and therefore in people's lives. Progress in biotechnology has produced high though-put technologies that rapidly generate massive amounts of biological data. The need for computational tools and mathematical methods to analyze this data has resulted in increased interactions between biologists and mathematicians.

The talks presented here will focus on two major types of data: the discrete sequence data from large scale genome sequencing projects and the continuous data generated using microarrays, an essential tool in biotechnology today. These talks will illustrate the role of mathematics and statistics in the biotechnology industry.

These talks are held in conjunction with the SIAM Conference on Mathematics for Industry: Challenges and Frontiers
