## Maths and Biology - Index

Mathematics is related to everything, and above all, to all natural sciences, including biology. Here I will describe, among other things, how the the laws of inheritance , one of the greatest discoveries in biology opening the way to the DNA revolution , was possible because of MendelĀ“s strong background in maths.

Here I will discuss how biology is related to 3 mathematical theories:

### Geometry :

The size of cells: surface areas and volumes and the shapes of viruses: polyhedra

### Probabilities

### Combinatorial analysis

DNA: the four letter code and the independent assortment in meiosis
