Statistics and Bioinformatics Training
The Applied Statistics and Applied Bioinformatics Groups have developed a series of training courses to support the application of quantitative tools to add value to the institute scientific research programme.
Modelling the spread of emerging epidemics; the case of Citrus Greening
Researchers develop a model allowing characterisation of the disease transmission process
Scientists at Rothamsted Research, working alongside Cambridge University have developed a model allowing characterisation of the disease transmission process, even when epidemiological data are limited due to the presence of control measures.
