In this publication, Mondaini (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Dilao (Instituto Superior Technico, Portugal) bring together the proceedings of the BIOMAT 2007 International Symposium on Mathematical and Computational Biology, held in November 2007 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and attended by physicists, mathematicians, chemists, biologists, and other scientists from around the world. It contains 20 keynote speeches and selected papers in mathematical biology, biological physics, biophysics, and bioinformatics, including new results on some aspects of Lotka-Volterra equations, the proposal of using differential geometry to model neurosurgical tools, recent data on epidemiological modeling, and discussion of pattern recognition and comprehensive reviews on the structure of proteins, the folding problem, and the influence of Allee effects on population dynamics. Other papers consider the growth of gliomas, the concept of the gene and the mechanisms of gene expression, a differential geometric approach to the influence of the drying effect on the dynamics of pods of Leguminosae, the comparison of agent-based models with the approach of differential equations on the study of selection mechanisms in germinal centers, and the synchronization phenomenon for protocell systems driven by linear kinetic equations.
