Mathematicians and biologists are learning together how to describe and study the complexity of living things, revealing sometimes unexpected connections to fields of pure mathematics which include number theory and topology. We'll discuss some of the most interesting such connections, and understand what mathematics has to say about the evolution and development of life in our world.
