Genomic approaches to virus discovery and molecular epidemiology

Abstract:

Viral sequence data has great potential for answering questions about the epidemiological dynamics and evolution of viruses. Classical approaches have sought amino acid changes that alter pathogenesis or transmissibility by influencing a virus's ability to enter or replicate within cells. However, this approach rarely recognises the fundamental impact of heterogeneous host contact structures and existing immunological responses on viral transmission. This thesis draws heavily on ecological...
