# Developmental biology

We develop, analyse and employ mathematical models to better understand developmental processes.

Find out about the research we undertake in the Centre

We develop, analyse and employ mathematical models to better understand developmental processes.

We use mathematics to derive fundamental insights into the dynamics of evolution.

We apply bioinformatics to very large sequence datasets to understand microbial diversification, adaptation and the emergence and spread of new microbes.

We seek connections, such as the phenomenon of feedback, between control theory and biological systems.

We develop and analyse mechanistic mathematical models for the epidemiological dynamics of infectious diseases.

We use methods from pure mathematics to study how knots and tangles form in strands of DNA.

The Centre was set up in 1994 to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between mathematicians, biologists and other scientists at the University of Bath and beyond. Its membership includes about twenty academic staff, their postdoctoral researchers and postgraduate students.
