## Readings

As the course progresses, we will post papers we find interesting or that we specifically mention in class.

**The unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences**by Eugene Wigner in Communications in pure and applied mathematics, 1960, 13(1). This article gives an expansive view of the power of mathematics in studying the natural world.

**Cell biology by the numbers**. This book is a free and online version that attempts to provide a view of modern biology through the prism of biological numeracy. This book can be a great resource for many of the order-of-magnitude questions we will face in our approach to biology.
