The course focuses on the collection, curation, phenotypic analysis, modelling and genetic analysis of field data on infectious diseases in livestock. Field data on infectious diseases in livestock is very noisy and incomplete by its very nature and the course will clearly outline all the challenges related to handling these data and how to make meaningful inferences.
The course will consist of a series of lectures (approximately 5 hours spread over the day), exercises and discussions. Participants will work in groups and data labs during the day to get hands on experience of the topics covered. Students will present results of the group work. R will be used for exercises.
