SBG -- Stochastics and Biology Group


About SBG
English (USA)

There is a growing need for probability in biology giving rise to new and complex mathematical problems. These areas now include not only genetics, evolution and ecology, but also cancer biology, cell and systems biology, neuroscience and epidemiology. Many modeling problems in these different areas share some common mathematical features, structures and dynamics. A number of researchers in probability are discovering new phenomena and developing new methods arising from problems in biology.

The purpose of the Stochastics and Biology Group is to establish a forum for probabilists working on models motivated by or applicable to biology to share information of common interest to this community, such as:
* announcements for workshops and conferences,
* posdoctoral positions,
* upper-level undergraduate and graduate level course materials,
* information on journals publishing research in probability and biology.

This will be done via a group email list, hosting of a group web page, and possible establishment of a discussion forum. We hope that the focus group will also help establish identity of this research area and enhance its visibility within the probability and statistics community, and within the mathematical biology community.

The Stochastics and Biology Group webpage is hosted at (*under construction):
