Biology and Mathematics Training Program (UBMTP)
will educate undergraduate students in an environment
in which mathematics and biology are intimately linked
at both the curricular as well as the research level.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences (DMS)
and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics
(CAMS) at the New Jersey Institute of Technology,
under the auspices of the Major Research
Instrumentation (MRI) program, have acquired
a 67-node Beowulf-class computer cluster for
