The Centre was established in 1996. Biomathematics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computer science to contemporary problems in biology.
Our mission is to develop methods and tools for transforming complex data into knowledge. “E tipu, e rea, mo ngā ra o tau ao – grow up and thrive for the days destined to you”
The SAIL group researches in collaboration with our partners on image processing and machine learning problems and develops prototypes for deployment.
