IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, computing and biology stood out as areas of great scientific progress. Dramatic breakthroughs were reported in newspapers and popular magazines as well as in the more staid scientific literature. While this essay will touch briefly on some of these more familiar topics, the goal is to examine the intersection between the areas where computing and biology communicate. Mainly we will discuss applications of computing and the mathematical sciences to biology, but there are also applications of biology to computing and the mathematical sciences.
