BaMBA is a one-day meeting aimed at creating a fairly informal atmosphere to explore the role of mathematics in biology. Going beyond traditional applied mathematics, the topics include applications of algebraic, topological, statistical and computational methods. Our goal is to encourage dialogue between researchers and students from different disciplines in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of ideas and viewpoints. We expect a day full of enticing discussions!
