By teaming computers and biology, scientists can answer new and old questions that could offer insights into the fundamental processes that keep us alive and make us sick. This booklet introduces you to just some of the ways that physicists, biologists and even artists are computing life. Each section focuses on a different research problem, offers examples of current scientific projects.
