7. “Seven Equations of Life: The Fundamental Relationships of Biomathematics” by Robert Jackson

“Seven Equations of Life: The Fundamental Relationships of Biomathematics” Book Review: This textbook discusses the fundamental mathematical relationships that determine the properties of living systems. It addresses complex systems through operations of recurring patterns such as nonlinearity, iteration, self-similarity, feedback, autocatalysis and hierarchical organization. It emphasizes on the study of seven fundamental equations to discover and understand useful insights into the emergent properties of complex biological systems. The book intends to provide ease to those who find biomathematics intimidating by demonstrating the relationships between matter, energy, and information to understand the complexities of life sciences.

8. “Molecular Evolution (Biomathematics)” by Vadim A Ratner and Andrey A Zharkikh

“Molecular Evolution (Biomathematics)” Book Review: This textbook elaborates on the study of the origin of self-reproducing systems of macromolecules and their evolution, and large-scale nucleotide sequencing using computational techniques. The book covers the evolution of molecular genetic regulatory systems and provides elaborate discussions on many fundamental problems of molecular biology, evolution, molecular genetic organization, the structure and function of macromolecules etc. The textbook intends to develop a unified theory through these discussions. It covers various theoretical results as well as computational methods.

9. “Biomathematics: Mathematics of Biostructures and Biodynamics” by S Andersson and K Larsson

“Biomathematics: Mathematics of Biostructures and Biodynamics” Book Review: This textbook focuses on new mathematics for cellular and molecular structures and dynamic processes. It deals with the shape of the cells and cell organelles in plants and animals, and changes of shape associated with various life processes. It provides a geometrical description for cellular and molecular shape with biological relevance. The book comprises a total of fifteen chapters covering various concepts such as Nodal Surfaces, Planes, Rods and Transformation, Motion in Biology, Cubic Cell Membrane Systems, Cells and their divisions, RNA and DNA modelling etc.
