Abstract: It is widely acknowledged that providing undergraduate students in mathematics with a genuine research experience contributes positively to academic progress and perseverance as well as fostering the development of skills that will provide a sufficient complement to those generally developed in the regular program. However, identifying and formulating problems that are of interest for the scientific community and are also suitable for examination by students with limited prior knowledge, and implementing such a research program requires an investment in time and effort on the part of professors that may be prohibitive. The main goal of this collective book is to provide undergraduates with a marked interest in computational and mathematical biology with the tools that they need to be able to undertake research without it becoming a burden for the supervisor and a demoralizing experience for the students. To that end, ten groups of researchers who have stood out for the quality of the supervision they have provided to undergraduate students were invited to formulate proposals for research projects located at the intersection of biology and mathematics.
