Getting Started

Welcome to QUBES Hub

This web site is a resource for education, research and collaboration in quantitative biology.   It hosts various resources which will help you learn and teach in the field of quantitative biology, including Teaching & Reference Materials, Models, Data, and more. These resources come from contributors in our community, and are used by visitors from all over the world. QUBES also offers Software, some of which can be executed directly within your web browser, thus allowing you to use simulations and data analysis as part of your teaching and learning in quantitative biology without having to go through the lengthy install process.


  • The mission of the QUBES (Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis) project is to improve learning opportunities for all students enrolled in undergraduate biology courses by reflecting the centrality of quantitative approaches in modern biology. See our About page to learn more.
