About your speaker
Dr. Matthew Scotch’s research focuses on the theory and application of phylogeography to study the migration of zoonotic RNA viruses with a particular interest in influenza A viruses. The work in his lab includes the integration, analysis, and presentation of viral genetics for One Health (human and animal) surveillance.
Sequence-informed, real-time surveillance is now recognised as an important extension to the monitoring of rapidly evolving pathogens. This includes viruses occurring naturally in the environment as well as those released through acts of bioterrorism. This presentation will discuss bioinformatics methods that utilise sequence data for surveillance of infectious disease threats.
