- Modelling bluetongue virus transmission between farms using animal and vector movementsJoanne Turner
Department of Epidemiology and Population Health, Institute of Infection and Global Health, University of Liverpool, UK
Sci Rep 2:319. 2012..Movement restrictions are effective at reducing outbreak size, and a targeted approach would be as effective as a total movement ban. The model framework is flexible and can be adapted to other vector-borne diseases of livestock...
- Two-host, two-vector basic reproduction ratio (R(0)) for bluetongueJoanne Turner
Department of Epidemiology and Population Health, Institute of Infection and Global Health, University of Liverpool, Leahurst, Neston, United Kingdom
PLoS ONE 8:e53128. 2013..Our results are equally relevant to Europe, where at least two vector species, which co-occur in parts of the south, have been implicated in the recent epizootic of bluetongue...
- A network model of E. coli O157 transmission within a typical UK dairy herd: the effect of heterogeneity and clustering on the prevalence of infectionJ Turner
Department of Veterinary Clinical Science, The University of Liverpool, Leahurst, Neston, South Wirral CH64 7TE, UK
J Theor Biol 254:45-54. 2008..In terms of investigating proposed interventions, the results suggest that a network model would only be required if there was evidence to suggest that direct transmission was the major source of infection...
- Infection in social networks: using network analysis to identify high-risk individualsR M Christley
Epidemiology Group, Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
Am J Epidemiol 162:1024-31. 2005..Identification of more central individuals in populations may be used to inform surveillance and infection control strategies...
- Community structure and the interplay between interspecific infection and competitionR G Bowers
Department of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Liverpool, Liverpool, L69 3BX, U K
J Theor Biol 187:95-109. 1997..Results are compared with previous work and apparent competition and resource- and transmission-mediated coexistence are discussed...
- Prevalence and genetic diversity of Campylobacter spp. in environmental water samples from a 100-square-kilometer predominantly dairy farming areaR Kemp
DEFRA Epidemiology Fellowship, Department of Veterinary Epidemiology, University of Liverpool, Leahurst, Chester High Rd, Neston, S Wirral CH64 7TE, United Kingdom
Appl Environ Microbiol 71:1876-82. 2005..Most of the isolates within the common flaA type were discriminated by PFGE-RFLP. These findings suggest a possible role for environmental water in the epidemiology of Campylobacter spp. in a farming environment...
