Principles and dynamics governing transmission of mycobacterial infection
International Symposium and Workshop
Wageningen University, The Netherlands; 22-24 May 2018

  • Highlight recent findings on infection dynamics of mycobacteria that help us to better understand the principles and dynamics governing transmission of mycobacterial infection. The focus lies on the main pathogens causing the two animal diseases tuberculosis (M. bovis) and Johne's disease (M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis).

  • Promote the use of newly developed methodology for incorporating bacterial phylogenetics based on Whole Genome Sequencing into predictive models for infectious diseases.

  • Promote interdisciplinary research incorporating ecology, molecular biology, epidemiology, and economics to tackle the challenges of monitoring and controlling animal disease with limited intervention options.
