Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Determining Buffalo behaviour, movement, disease and energy costs to assist their management and conservation

Human population growth drives food demand requiring additional land for its production. Consequent human encroachment into wildlife habitats, illegal poaching and increased human/wildlife contact are key drivers of biodiversity loss. Read more

Patterns and processes underlying genetic and adaptive variation in the Namaqua rock mouse (Micaelamys namaquensis) from southern Africa

Small mammals provide important ecosystem services as pollinators and seed dispersers (Jones and Safi 2011). They also aerate soil, regulate insect populations, support forest regeneration and are a food source for snakes, bird of prey and carnivores (Pearce & Venier 2005). Read more

How do evolutionary changes in innate immune genes influence the carriage of zoonotic pathogen

Description. Zoonotic pathogens, such as COVID-19, reside in animal hosts before jumping species to infect humans. How diversity in host immune genes across species impact upon pathogen carriage are poorly understood. Read more

Quantifying biodiversity benefits and disease disbenefits from woodland creation projects

Background. Woodland creation projects and ecological networks for nature (eg Natural England Nature Networks) are increasing in the UK under government policies to increase tree planting for climate change mitigation and to promote biodiversity by enabling species dispersal and movements.

Using genome editing as an antiviral tool

Viral disease in livestock is a ongoing problem for animal welfare and food production. Recent outbreaks of emerging and re-emerging viruses show the devastation that these outbreaks can have socioeconomically, on animals, and on local and global economies. Read more
