Group DYNAMO aims to better understand and predict the spread and persistence of endemic pathogens in animal populations, and to assess targeted control strategies.
Context and Issues
Management of livestock infectious risks and of associated public health issues
To better understand and predict the spread and persistence of endemic pathogens in animal populations
To assess targeted control strategies
Complex biological systems are studied at intra-host, inter-host, metapopulation and network scales.

Expertise and skills
Predictive modeling approaches combining mechanistic simulations VS. driven by data
To promote reproducibility, reliability and clarity of our models, we propose a generic framework of multi-scale simulation facilitating the integration of expert knowledge and the capitalization of the work carried out. We combine data and models to promote realistic modeling and quantify uncertain processes.
