Genomics News Wire
Mathematics and the Genome, by Joseph Malkevitch, was the American Mathematical Society's April 2002 feature article.
Broad-based science magazines such as Nature, Science, and Discoverhave recently published articles about mathematics and the genome, and the entire June 8, 2001 issue of Science was devoted to the genome. If you have a subscription to these journals you may search their sites by keyword and author, for instance.
See a list of Genetics, Genomics & Biotechnology Journals and search the web for other specialized journals such as Applied Mathematics and Computation and others that publish articles related to mathematics and the genome.
Search the Washington Post, New York Times, and other major newspapers that cover science and technology news in weekly sections devoted to these topicsincluding mathematics, statistics and bioinformatics used in genome research. Most newspapers offer free access to articles for a week or so, then charge a fee for accessing the archive.
Two recent books on the subject are: Genome: the Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters, by Matt Ridley (NY, HarperCollins, 2000), and Life Script: How the Human Genome Discoveries Will Transform Medicine and Enhance Your Health, by Nicholas Wade (NY, Simon and Schuster, 2001), reviewed in the New York Times Book Review, September 9, 2001.
Mathematics and DNA, by De Witt Sumners, was the Mathematics Awareness Month 1999 theme essay.
