Period18 Feb - 24 Feb 2018
This was the fifth workshop on mathematical and statistical methods on the transmission of infectious diseases. Building on epidemiologic models which were the subject of earlier workshops, this workshop concentrated on disentangling who infected whom by analysing high-resolution genomic data of pathogens which were routinely collected during disease outbreaks. Following the trail of the small mutations which continuously occur in different places of the pathogens’ genomes, mathematical tools and computational algorithms were used to reconstruct transmission trees and contact networks.
