Bioinformatics and bio-mathematical modelling

X-ray of a nautilus shell

Using mathematical approaches to biological problems underpins many research approaches to understand how plants operate. This approach applies to many aspects of plant biology, ranging from understanding genetic information content, function of molecular & cellular processes, plant-environment interactions and global climate change models.
