#### Small step towards growing tissue in the lab

(Phys.org) —University of Adelaide mathematicians have devised a method for identifying how cell clusters have formed by analyzing an image of the cluster.

#### An equation to describe the competition between genes

In biology, scientists typically conduct experiments first, and then develop mathematical or computer models afterward to show how the collected data fit with theory. In his work, Rob Phillips flips that ...

#### Europe's resilience of natural gas networks during conflicts and crises probed with maths

Gas networks in Eastern European countries, such as Ukraine and Belarus are less resilient than the UK during conflicts and crises, according to new research from mathematicians at Queen Mary University of ...
