Written by experts in both mathematics and biology, *Algebraic and Discrete Mathematical Methods for Modern Biology* offers a bridge between math and biology, providing a framework for simulating, analyzing, predicting, and modulating the behavior of complex biological systems. Each chapter begins with a question from modern biology, followed by the description of certain mathematical methods and theory appropriate in the search of answers. Every topic provides a fast-track pathway through the problem by presenting the biological foundation, covering the relevant mathematical theory, and highlighting connections between them. Many of the projects and exercises embedded in each chapter utilize specialized software, providing students with much-needed familiarity and experience with computing applications, critical components of the "modern biology" skill set. This book is appropriate for mathematics courses such as finite mathematics, discrete structures, linear algebra, abstract/modern algebra, graph theory, probability, bioinformatics, statistics, biostatistics, and modeling, as well as for biology courses such as genetics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology, and evolution.

- Examines significant questions in modern biology and their mathematical treatments
- Presents important mathematical concepts and tools in the context of essential biology
- Features material of interest to students in both mathematics and biology
- Presents chapters in modular format so coverage need not follow the Table of Contents
- Introduces projects appropriate for undergraduate research
- Utilizes freely accessible software for visualization, simulation, and analysis in modern biology
- Requires no calculus as a prerequisite
- Provides a complete Solutions Manual
- Features a companion website with supplementary resources

Inspired by the national initiative toward a “new biology, this work offers a collection of modules introducing methods from modern discrete mathematics into the undergraduate math and biology curricula. Each module begins with a question from contemporary biology, followed by the description of mathematical methods and theory appropriate for the search of answers. Projects and exercises embedded in the text utilize freely accessible or widely available software for visualization, simulation, and analysis used in modern biology research. This book is appropriate for mathematics courses such as finite mathematics, discrete structures, linear algebra, abstract/modern algebra, graph theory, probability, bioinformatics, statistics, biostatistics, and modeling, as well as for biology courses such as genetics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology, and evolution. The companion website includes solutions to all exercises and additional materials including tutorials, projects, data sets, and computer code.
