In recent years it has become clear that mathematical tools from algebra, group theory, combinatorics, and topology play essential roles in understanding vital biological processes at the molecular scale. These include applications of

There are a number of intriguing connections between these techniques, and they are all essential tools for our understanding of structures and processes in molecular biology, especially nucleic acids and proteins.
