Research Project: Analytic Frameworks for Infectious Diseases

Location: Plant-Microbe Interactions Research

Project Number: 8062-22000-035-05
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 11, 2013
End Date: Jan 31, 2015

Objective:
The primary focus will be on the implementation of a well-documented, open source software toolkit for national-scale modeling of infectious diseases in agricultural settings. A secondary focus will be on developing analytically tractable models that can be used to validate the toolkit implementation.

Approach:
The toolkit will address three critical technology gaps: a) inference of networks from landscape and remotely sensed data; b) structural analysis of complex networks, and; c) stochastic dynamics on very large, irregular networks. The software toolkit will be implemented in C++, along with with appropriate test cases for validation.
