About the Consortium
The NSF-Funded Four Colleges Biomathematics Consortium, 4CBC, comprises a group of faculty from Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges drawn together by an interest in mathematical aspects of biology.
What is Biomathematics
The explosion of data being produced in all fields of biological investigation is one of the leading phenomena of 21st century science. Extracting meaning from these complex data sets, requires an interaction between biologists capable of asking sophisticated mathematical questions and mathematicians willing to delve into biology to develop tools relevant to living systems.
