Proposal submitted to CIRM for the organisation of a residential month on mathematical issues in biology  February 6March 6, 2020 Scope This residential month is in line with the sessions organized at CIRM each February by a group of Marseille researchers since 2001. In February 2020, the members of the Institute of Mathematics of Marseille involved in collaborations with biologists propose to gather in CIRM researchers from around the world around the mathematical biolgy thematic. The interplay between mathematics and biology has developed rapidly since the last decades of the XXth century, both in France and in all developed countries. The progress of the biological science requires mathematical modeling, while the increased quantity of available data allows to compare models with reality, and requires a lot of statistics.This is true at all levels of life. The evolution of species, their interactions among themselves and with their environment, ecology and the condition for maintenance of biodiversity is one major eld where biologists, mathematicians and statisticians interact. At the same time, emerging epidemics (AIDS, H1N1, EBOLA) as well as the development of antibiotic resistances call for progress in the mathematical modeling of epidemics, and of the interplay between their dynamics and the evolution of viruses.
