The group focuses on the integration of modelling with field and laboratory experiments to study population dynamics/epidemiology and evolutionary ecology of plants and their pests and pathogens.
Computational and Systems Biology
The Computational and Systems Biology Department undertakes research and development in mathematical, statistical and computational solutions to biological problems at all levels of biological scale. We are developing methods, models and software which contribute to all of the strategic programmes within Rothamsted Research.
The Applied Statistics and Applied Bioinformatics Groups have developed a series of training courses to support the application of quantitative tools to add value to the institute scientific research programme.
Researchers develop a model allowing characterisation of the disease transmission process
Scientists at Rothamsted Research, working alongside Cambridge University have developed a model allowing characterisation of the disease transmission process, even when epidemiological data are limited due to the presence of control measures.
