Abstract

This workshop will focus on some mathematical and statistical challenges faced by the discipline of genomic epidemiology, which tries to study the spread, transmission, and other characteristics of infectious disease-causing microbes by leveraging the information contained in their genome. These challenges are exacerbated by the large amounts of data, the relative difficulty of ascertaining transmission patterns in real-life observations, and the inherent heterogeneity of microbes.
