Leveling Up in Life Sciences: Unleashing the Power of Computational Biology with Wolfram Language

In days past, life sciences was reserved for those who had access to the proper equipment to observe and experiment with the organisms of the physical world. For today’s scientist, exploration doesn’t end with access to physical encounters. Whether you’re classifying an animal for the first time or using a protein visualizer to develop medication, Wolfram Language holds the tools and power to support your computational life science endeavors. The following is a collection of biology resources, projects and functions in Wolfram Language for any skill level.

Get Down to Business with Finite Mathematics in Wolfram Language

“There is every reason to expect that the various social sciences will serve as incentives for the development of great new branches of mathematics and that some day the theoretical social scientist will have to know more mathematics than the physicist needs to know today.”

John G. Kemeny, first author of the original textbook on finite mathematics and co-inventor of the BASIC programming language

Finite mathematics gives students a mathematical toolkit used in fields as diverse as business, economics, sociology and biology while covering techniques that are logically distinct from calculus.

Nutrients by the Numbers: Food and Nutrition Statistics with Wolfram Language

Statistical analysis is an important tool in food science. It can uncover patterns and relationships in food and nutrition data, leading to advances in food manufacturing, nutrition counseling, food safety and new product development. Wolfram Language offers built-in functions for all standard statistical distributions. Here, we’ll use some of these functions to evaluate relationships between nutrients and visualize the data distributions with informative plots and histograms.

Creamy or Crunchy: Visualizing Food Protein Structures in Wolfram Language

How important is the relationship between protein structure and the food we eat?

  • Protein structure influences food texture. It can make a food smooth and creamy or crisp and crunchy.
  • Protein structure helps determine digestibility. Proteins with looser structures are more readily hydrolyzed into amino acids for easier digestion.
  • Protein structure is a factor in whether foods such as peanuts and shellfish cause an allergic reaction.
  • Protein structure can make our foods elegant and appetizing.

Introducing Chat Notebooks: Integrating LLMs into the Notebook Paradigm

We originally invented the concept of “Notebooks” back in 1987, for Version 1.0 of Mathematica. And over the past 36 years, Notebooks have proved to be an incredibly convenient medium in which to do—and publish—work (and indeed, I, for example, have created hundreds of thousands of them). And, yes, eventually the basic concepts of Notebooks […]

Prompts for Work & Play: Launching the Wolfram Prompt Repository

Prompts are how one channels an LLM to do something. LLMs in a sense always have lots of “latent capability” (e.g. from their training on billions of webpages). But prompts—in a way that’s still scientifically mysterious—are what let one “engineer” what part of that capability to bring out.
