Mathematical modeling is an effective resource for biologists-- it provides ways to simplify, study and understand the complex systems common in biology and biochemistry. Many mathematical tools can be applied to biologicalproblems, some traditional and some more novel, all innovative. This presentation will review some the mathematical tools that I use to study biological questions including knot theory applied to DNA-protein interactions and using social networks to study evolutionary success.
