Aedes aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito, is a mosquito that can spread dengue fever, chikungunya, Zika fever, Mayaro and yellow fever viruses, and other disease agents.
The black rockfish (Sebastes melanops), also known variously as the black seaperch, black bass, black rock cod, sea bass, black snapper and Pacific Ocean perch, is a rockfish of the genus Sebastes.
In probability theory, a branching process is a type of mathematical object known as a stochastic process, which consists of collections of random variables.
BRN is a three-letter acronym that may refer to.
Compartmental models are a technique used to simplify the mathematical modelling of infectious disease.
Contagion is a 2011 U.S. medical thriller-disaster film directed by Steven Soderbergh.
In epidemiology, an infection is said to be endemic (from Greek ἐν en "in, within" and δῆμος demos "people") in a population when that infection is constantly maintained at a baseline level in a geographic area without external inputs.
Evolutionary invasion analysis, also known as adaptive dynamics, is a set of mathematical modeling techniques that use differential equations to study the long-term evolution of traits in asexually reproducing populations.
In epidemiology, force of infection (denoted \lambda) is the rate at which susceptible individuals acquire an infectious disease.
H5N1 genetic structure is the molecular structure of the H5N1 virus's RNA.
Herd immunity (also called herd effect, community immunity, population immunity, or social immunity) is a form of indirect protection from infectious disease that occurs when a large percentage of a population has become immune to an infection, thereby providing a measure of protection for individuals who are not immune.
In epidemiology, infectivity is the ability of a pathogen to establish an infection.
The Janzen–Connell hypothesis is a widely accepted explanation for the maintenance of tree species biodiversity in tropical rainforests.
The following is a list of the "E" codes for MeSH.
The following is a list of the "G" codes for MeSH.
The following is a list of the "L" codes for MeSH.
The following is a list of the "N" codes for MeSH.
Mathematical models can project how infectious diseases progress to show the likely outcome of an epidemic and help inform public health interventions.
Networked advocacy or net-centric advocacy refers to a specific type of advocacy.
In epidemiology, the next-generation matrix is a method used to derive the basic reproduction number, for a compartmental model of the spread of infectious diseases.
In biology, a pathogen (πάθος pathos "suffering, passion" and -γενής -genēs "producer of") or a '''germ''' in the oldest and broadest sense is anything that can produce disease; the term came into use in the 1880s.
R0 or R00 may refer to.
The Reed–Frost model is a mathematical model of epidemics put forth in the 1920s by Lowell Reed and Wade Hampton Frost, of Johns Hopkins University.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV).
A super-spreader is a host—an organism infected with a disease—that infects, disproportionally, more secondary contacts than other hosts who are, also, infected with the same disease.
Transmissibility may have several meanings.
Transmission of an infection requires three conditions.
Viral dynamics is a field of applied mathematics concerned with describing the progression of viral infections within a host organism.
Viral marketing or viral advertising is a business strategy that uses existing social networks to promote a product.
Viral phylodynamics is defined as the study of how epidemiological, immunological, and evolutionary processes act and potentially interact to shape viral phylogenies.
The West African Ebola virus epidemic (2013–2016) was the most widespread outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in history—causing major loss of life and socioeconomic disruption in the region, mainly in the countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae.
The 2009 flu pandemic or swine flu was an influenza pandemic, and the second of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus (the first of them being the 1918 flu pandemic), albeit in a new version.
