Free NIH Education Booklet on Computational Biology

Find out how biomedical engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and biologists use computers to answer important health-related questions in a free science education booklet called Computing Life.

The booklet features short articles, colorful graphics, and fun sidebars that highlight the different roles of computers and related advances in medical research. It also introduces science students to potential new career opportunities.

Here's a sampling of what you'll find in the free booklet:
• Overviews of biomedical research areas relying on computing and math
• Short, clear descriptions of current research projects
• Profiles of people conducting the work
• Callout boxes with trivia and activities
• Links to animations and other resources.

Plus, visit the Web site (http://publications.nigms.nih.gov/computinglife) every month to find new research advances, interviews, interactive games, and multimedia or to order a free copy of the printed booklet.

Computing Life is part of a growing collection of free science education materials available from NIH's National Institute of General Medical Sciences. These printed and online resources focus on medically relevant life sciences. You can preview, download, and order them via the "More Publications" link at the top of the Computing Life home page. Printed materials are available individually or in classroom sets.
