  • Wed, 31 Jan 2018 19:45:55 +0000: Novel computational biology model accurately describes dynamics of gene expression - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Using a simple analytical framework for random events within a predictable system, computational biologists have found a new way to accurately model certain forms of gene expression, including the body's 24-hour internal clock. This new approach of applying a piecewise deterministic Markov process (PDMP) to gene expression could inform possible design principles for synthetic biologists.
  • Wed, 24 Jan 2018 18:17:36 +0000: Positive attitude toward math predicts math achievement in kids - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    For the first time, scientists have identified the brain pathway that links a positive attitude toward math to achievement in the subject. In a study of elementary school students, researchers found that having a positive attitude about math was connected to better function of the hippocampus, an important memory center in the brain, during performance of arithmetic problems.
  • Wed, 24 Jan 2018 17:30:53 +0000: Mathematicians develop model for how new ideas emerge - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers have developed a mathematical model for the emergence of innovations.
  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 15:08:02 +0000: A centuries-old math equation used to solve a modern-day genetics challenge - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers developed a new mathematical tool to validate and improve methods used by medical professionals to interpret results from clinical genetic tests.
  • Tue, 16 Jan 2018 16:10:54 +0000: The Fields Medal fallacy: Why this math prize should return to its roots - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    The Fields Medal, whose origins date back to the 1930s, will be issued again this year in August to up to four of the world's most accomplished mathematicians under the age of 40. Experts now propose that the Fields Medal return to its roots as a tool intended to shape the future of mathematics, rather than recognizing those who have already found the spotlight.
