Math and Bio 2010: Linking Undergraduate Disciplines

The full report is available for order from the MAA. Additional relevant links are available from this site. "Math & Bio 2010: Linking Undergraduate Disciplines envisages a new educational paradigm in which the disciplines of mathematics and biology, currently quite separate, will be productively linked in the undergraduate science programs of the twenty-first century. As a science, biology depends increasingly on data, algorithms and models; in virtually every respect, it is becoming more quantitative, more computational and more mathematical. While these trends are related, they are not the same; they represent, rather, three different perspectives on what many are calling the 'new biology.'"
