How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Emergence of new viral diseases is linked to mutation or recombination events. The likelihood of cross-species transmission is related to phenotypic plasticity of a virus and its capacity to produce genetically variable progeny. Herein a model is described connecting the production of genetic variability with increasing genome size. Comparing all k...

COVID-19 has become a global pandemic, resulting in nearly three hundred thousand deaths distributed heterogeneously across countries. Estimating the infection fatality rate (IFR) has been elusive due to the presence of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic infections and lack of testing capacity. We analyze global data to derive the IFR of COVID-19....
Article
The productivity susceptibility analysis (PSA) is a widely used method to rapidly assess species risk to fishing activities in data‐poor fisheries. A step in ecological risk assessments and used in data‐poor assessment for sustainable fisheries certification programmes (e.g. MSC) and recommendation lists (e.g. Seafood Watch), the PSA is semi‐quanti...

CRISPR gene drives could revolutionize the control of infectious diseases by accelerating the spread of engineered traits that limit parasite transmission in wild populations. While much effort has been spent developing gene drives in mosquitoes, gene drive technology in molluscs has received little attention despite the role of freshwater snails a...

Ecological Risk Assessment is a formal process widely applied to terrestrial, marine, and freshwater ecosystems to evaluate the likelihood of adverse ecological effects occurring as a result of exposure to natural or anthropogenic stressors. For many species, data is sparse and semi-quantitative methodologies provide valuable insight for ecosystem...
Conference Paper
p>Combination therapy is a common feature of cancer treatment, aiming to maximize efficacy while minimizing toxicity and opportunities for acquired resistance. It is critical to assess which combinations achieve best effects. This requires rigorous, statistically sound methods of characterizing the relationships between drugs as synergistic, indepe...
Article
Full-text available
The first signs of sea star wasting disease (SSWD) epidemic occurred in just few months in 2013 along the entire North American Pacific coast. Disease dynamics did not manifest as the typical travelling wave of reaction-diffusion epidemiological model, suggesting that other environmental factors might have played some role. To help explore how exte...

Schistosomiasis is one of the most important and widespread neglected tropical diseases (NTD), with over 200 million people infected in more than 70 countries; the disease has nearly 800 million people at risk in endemic areas. Although mass drug administration is a cost-effective approach to reduce occurrence, extent, and severity of the disease,...
Article
Perhaps the most important recent advance in species delimitation has been the development of model-based approaches to objectively diagnose species diversity from genetic data. Additionally, the growing accessibility of next-generation sequence datasets provides powerful insights into genome-wide patterns of divergence during speciation. However,...
